Murray and Bun - Murray the Viking book review

Adventure lies beyond the cat flap! Meet your favourite new duo: Murray and Bun!

Murray is a cat. Murray loves snoozing, fluffy blankets, and peace and quiet.

Bun is a bun. Bun loves … EVERYTHING!

And together they are unstoppable!

Sometimes Murray’s enchanted cat flap leads to the garden … but mostly it leads to ADVENTURE!

And when Murray and Bun travel through the cat flap and find themselves in a land of Vikings, they’re given a very important mission: to travel to Troll Island and rescue Eggrik the Viking … if he hasn’t already been gobbled up by the trolls, that is.

Perfect for newly independent readers and fans of Bunny vs Monkey, Dog Man, Adventure Mice and Claude, this funny, exciting, and hugely loveable story – brilliantly illustrated throughout – will delight adventure-lovers young and old. After all, heroes come in all shapes and sizes!
