Fantastic introduction to young readers about norse gods and vikings,
This review is from: Odd and the Frost Giants (World Book Day edition) (Paperback)
This is a fantastic introduction for quite young readers into the world of Vikings and Norse mythology. It's only a little book so makes for easy and quick reading. Begins with the character of Odd who sadly has a slightly crippled leg and so is unable to go on proper raids with his fellow Vikings. But one day when he is out chopping wood he comes across a fox, a raven and a bear who can talk to him! Turns out these three quite funny characters are actually Odin, Thor and Loki in animal form having been kicked out of Asgard by the Frost Giants. They seek Odd's help in reclaiming their home and so begins quite a magical adventure.
