  • Blueberry muffins with blueberries shining like gems atop the muffin’s golden crown.

  • Blueberry muffins with little bubbles of succulent blue juice that burst in your mouth when you sever their skin with your teeth.

  • Narrator

    Blueberry muffins for breakfast, blueberry muffins for lunch, blueberry muffins for supper next to your clan’s roaring fire in the longhouse.

  • The old pilot had seen it all in his day – kangaroo rodeos, bees on bicycles, and even a fish who could shoot – but never ever in his whole life did he expect to be stranded on board a wooden ship in the middle of the sea with a pair of humongous Vikings.

  • And now that pair had laid aside their horned helmets and were shoveling blueberry muffins into their mouths by the fistful.

    Storfjell

    β€œOh yah! ha ha!”

  • Narrator

    laughed the larger of the two Vikings – his name was Storfjell – with a deep, rumbly laugh that shook his mountainous belly.

  • Golden-brown muffin crumbs fell from Storfjell’s mouth into his silvery beard.

  • He was at least eleven feet tall, with a pair of silver braids that must have been woven from moonbeams.

    Storfjell

    β€œWhat you are saying is a common mistake!

  • We are loving blueberry muffins very much!

  • But you know what we are loving even more?”

  • Narrator

    Storfjell said between mouthfuls.
