Fearing's cheeky style perfectly accompanies these grungy Viking-helmeted, oddly endearing warriors...Break out the mead and pop a horned helmet on your head for the funniest pest invasion this side of Tromsø.
The story has the narrative momentum and comic beats of a cartoon short, and although Eaton’s (How to Track a Truck) text tends toward the literal, Fearing (Superhero Instruction Manual) has a broad visual repertoire when it comes to goofy, hirsute men in animal pelts and horned hats. It’s the truth served up with a good laugh, and it gives parents a new calamity to invoke the next time they’re confronted with a messy room.
In the spirit of David McPhail’s Edward and the Pirates and David Shannon’s How I Became a Pirate, a boy learns that his untidy habits have the unwelcome effect of inviting barbarians into his house...Fearing’s cartoon illustrations make the Viking-esque barbarians look more ridiculous than frightening. Many of the spreads include funny details, such as the invaders snacking on cat food, building forts from stolen blankets and pillows, and making a fire out of croquet mallets in the garage.
