Viking In Love by Doug Cenko

What would you do for love? Would you leave your comfort zone and do something that terrifies you?

The Picture Book of the Week is Viking In Love, written and illustrated by Doug Cenko.

About the Book:

Stig is a Viking who loves hearty stew, fresh air, and adorable kittens. The one thing he doesn’t like is the sea. He is very happy living as a land-locked Viking, that is, until he meets Ingrid and falls in love. Before he can tell her how he feels, she gets swept away by the sea. He has to go after her if he wants her to know he loves her, but the sea is not in his comfort zone. He tries other ways of getting his message to Ingrid, but each one fails. Will he brave the sea and go after his love? Will Ingrid and Stig live happily ever after?

Writing Exercise:

Write a love story. It can be your own or from your imagination. Include how you had to overcome an obstacle to make your love a reality.

Happy Writing!
