An extraordinary and enthralling illustrated anthology of Norse Myths from a Carnegie-Medal winning author.

The gods of the Vikings come to life as never before in this extraordinary illustrated anthology by Carnegie Medal-winning author Kevin Crossley-Holland and artist Jeffrey Alan Love. These dramatic, enthralling and atmospheric tales are based on the Scandinavian myth cycle - one of the greatest and most culturally significant stories in the world - and tell of Odin with his one eye, Thor with his mighty hammer and Loki, the red-haired, shape-shifting trickster. In this stunning collection of myths, the strange world of ancient magic, giants, dwarfs and monsters is unforgettably imagined.

5 stars
A beautifully illustrated book about norse myths very well retold. My children were very excited by this book. It is huge. The book is highly stylised, the illustrations look almost like silhouettes, colours are kept to a minimum too. This makes this book unique and very special indeed. The book is divided into chapters, each retelling a norse myth. It's written so very well, it's storytelling at its finest. It's a pleasure to read out loud. The children have loved it.
