A blog for the children’s picture book ‘The Last Viking’ by Australian authors Norman Jorgensen and James Foley (illustrator) published by the Western Australian publisher Fremantle Press. The story is about a boy who connects with his inner Viking to help him outwit bullies. The blog includes educational children’s activities (how to read runes, rune puzzles, colouring in), historical information (for example on William the Conqueror), and a section for teachers outlining how the book fits into the school curriculum, its themes, book design, and instructions on how students should post comments to the blog.
