    The fourth son of the King of Wessex, Alfred was not expected to rule or become a warrior. His love of books - he famously memorized a book when he was child so he could win it - suggested a clerical career. But in AD , when Alfred was sixteen, Vikings arrived in hundreds of ships, to conquer England’s northern kingdoms.   Wessex faces the greatest invasion of Alfred the Great's life. A vast Viking alliance threatens the last independent Saxon kingdom in all England. Can Wessex survive the onslaught? Can the young Prince Edward lead a Saxon army to victory? Ambrose, Edward's uncle, and a Byzantine scholar will once again be called upon to help in the bitter struggle.

      King Alfred is an inspiring role model and his faith and determination proved that character counts. Colorful illustrations are vibrant, expressive and appealing to young and old. Page titles, like in "chapter books" for older kids, summarize the story's progression and provide easy reference when discussing the book s: The most famous king of the Anglo-Saxons was Alfred the Great. Having “great” in his name should give you a hint that he was important to their history. He was called King of the English, the first to take that title. Many stories were written about Alfred that showed his smarts and humanness. He became king in AD after his brother died.
