Nice Throne, Shame About the Crown(1998)
(A book in the Derek the Depressed Viking: series)
A Chapter Book by Keith Brumpton
Derek is not a typical Viking - he gets seasick, he has to stand on all journeys because his legs are to o long to fit under the oars, and he doesn't like battles be cause the swords are too sharp and the shields too small. No wonder he's depressed.
