    But they don't realise that Henry has saved his best gags for this book, so their hard-earned money will be misspent when their anecdotes are overshadowed.

    Francesca Simon, one of the bestselling children's authors in the world, the creator of the Horrid Henry series, launches an exciting novel - The Sleeping Army - for children aged 8+.

    Freya is an ordinary girl living in modern Britain, but with a twist: people still worship the Viking gods. She's caught in her parents' divorce, and shuttling between bickering adults is no fun.

    One evening, stuck with her dad on his night shift at the British Museum, she is drawn to the Lewis Chessmen and Heimdall's Horn. Unable to resist, she blows the horn, waking three chess pieces from their enchantment; the slaves Roskva and Alfi, and Snot the Berserk.

    They are all summoned to Asgard, land of the Viking gods, and told they must go on a perilous journey to restore the gods to youth. If Freya refuses she will be turned into an ivory chess piece but, if she accepts her destiny and fails, the same terrible fate awaits her.
