"The action is fast-paced and the historic detail accurate. The reader is swept along with Magnus as his quest continues. Most know what happened to Harold, but this book explores why. The ending does not disappoint." * Historical Novel Society * In pacey prose for 8-10s, Tony Bradman's Anglo-Saxon Boy lays out the adventures that befall Magnus, son of Harold Godwinson, in the run-up to the Battle of Hastings. It is underpinned by historical fact (Magnus existed), and includes, satisfyingly, a grandmother who leads troops, as the story chronicles the making of a warrior. -- Nicolette Jones * The Sunday Times Culture magazine *
