The Chessmen Thief | Barbara Henderson


Live stream Author event For schools With children’s author Barbara Henderson

Join best-selling children’s author Barbara Henderson for this livestream book launch of her thrilling Viking adventure The Chessmen Thief.

The Chessman Thief


I was the boy with a plan. Now I am the boy with nothing.

From the moment 12-yearold Kylan hatches a plan to escape from his Norse captors, and return to Scotland to find his mother, his life becomes a dangerous game.

The precious Lewis Chessmen —which he helped carve—hold the key to his freedom, but he will need all his courage and wit to triumph against Sven Asleifsson, the cruellest Viking in the realm.

One false move could cost him his life.
