BOOK REVIEW: A Bone to Pick A Peggy Henderson Adventure by Gina McMurchy-Barber


Peggy is off to a Viking site in North America where she unearths the remains of a brave young warrior.

It’s a dream come true for Peggy Henderson when her friend, Dr. Edwina McKay, lets her tag along to the Viking settlement at L’Anse aux Meadows National Park in Newfoundland, where Dr. McKay will be teaching archaeology field school for the summer. Peggy already knows a lot about archaeology — having been on three previous excavations — but does she need to brag about it so much? After alienating herself from the other students with her know-it-all attitude, Peggy accidentally discovers a Viking burial cairn. The students and archaeologists are ecstatic. But when it comes time to excavate, she’s banned from participating in the dig. Will Peggy’s trip to Newfoundland end just as badly as the Vikings’ did? She’s afraid it will — that is until she learns an unexpected lesson from a Viking warrior.

REVIEW BY: Michaela, age 11 years, 5 months


This was a great story! I like the Norsemen parts because I learn even more about history, my favorite subject! 

My favorite character is the cook of the camp because she is so strong. My favorite part is when she tries to make spicy eggs. 

I recommend this book to those that love to learn about history! 

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 10 to 12. 

This book's publishing date is November 21, 2015.
