The Way to Thule is the fourth and last volume of the juvenile book series Kevin of Locksley, published in hardcover by Bastei Lübbe (illustrations for volume 2 and 3 here). The announced fifth book, The Pyramids of Azlan, wasn’t realized.

The books, published in hardcover by Bastei Lübbe, are the second and third part of the juvenile book series Kevin of Locksley, which takes place in the 12th century; the eponymous protagonist is Robins Hood’s half brother.
The first volume (Kevin of Locksley) was illustrated by Christian Turk. Because he wasn’t able to finish the illustrations for the second one (The Knight of Alexandria), I stepped in and provided, in addition to the already drawn pictures, four more (among them the first two images in the gallery above). Later on I illustrated the third  book (The Druids of Stonehenge) and the fourth  (The Way to Thule) with 12 drawings each.
