Sven might be the littlest Viking, but he has no trouble making himself known. He has the loudest warrior cry and the fiercest set of teeth. He loves to pillage and plunder. But there's a new kid in town--a warrior princess, who is smaller than Sven and even louder. What's a little Viking to do?
"Penfold folds in fun ancient analogues to tried-and-true methods of appeasing cranky little ones, and Roxas's liberal use of a color perhaps best described as neon snot brings a punk edge to her scenes of Viking family life. Irreverent yet tender."--Publishers Weekly, Starred review
"A warm tale of family togetherness."--Kirkus
"A spirited tale about stopping a tantrum with a story, perfect for storytime or one-on-one sharing."--SLJ

With delicious free samples and cuisines from around the world, it's a day of trying new things and having fun together!
Alexandra Penfold's rollicking, rhyming text and Mike Dutton's rich, dynamic illustrations make Food Truck Fest! the perfect story for kids who love things that go.
