Norman the Norman is at it again! And this time the Duchess of Normandy is determined that her William should have little Norman helping with this “Conquest thingy”. After all he is Normandy’s bravest broadsword swinging hero! But can Norman even make it to the boat on time? Or are there other adventures to be had with robbers, giants, a messenger called Barry, and Matilda the very small Duchess… An enticing combination of historical facts, supposition, slapstick humour and authorial asides. Comic genius.
