Olaf the Viking and the Pig Who Would be King
Olaf is just an ordinary Viking boy-so he hopes the gods will leave him alone now, to build an ordinary life in his ordinary village. After all, what could he possibly have to offer them? But the goddess Freja has a problem-and she needs Olaf just because he is ordinary. Freja has fallen in love with a mortal man, but she doesn't really understand how to win his heart-she's only used to dealing with other gods, after all. So Olaf must help her-and to make things worse, her beloved has to win a rather tricky contest against his brother to prove that he's the rightful King of Norway. It's time for Olaf, Freja, and the trickster Loki to lend him a hand. But as ever, their mission leads them into some very peculiar adventures indeed ...
