The Caldecott medal-winning d'Aulaires once again captivate their young audience with this beautifully illustrated introduction to Norse legends, telling stories of Odin the All-father, Thor the Thunder-god and the theft of his hammer, Loki the mischievous god of the Jotun Race, and Ragnarokk, the destiny of the gods. Children meet Bragi, the god of poetry, and the famous Valkyrie maidens, among other gods, goddesses, heroes, and giants.

Lovely artwork!  Sep 13, 2008
An interesting retelling of classic Norse myths accompanied by lovely artwork that looks like it was done using a combination of pastels and watercolors. For "serious" scholars of Norse mythology, this book isn't 100% "accurate" in that it's a much lighter take on a mythos that runs to the dark and scary but is great way to introduce children to a mythology they don't normally learn about in school.
 
Wanted to counter the one star person with my review  Aug 28, 2008
Sure, the Norse Gods book ends like an Eden, with the new men loving "The Almighty God". True.

I am one of those pagan/witch/Wiccan/Asatrus (whatever label you want to give me is fine, to me it's all religion). I got this book to learn more about the Norse pantheon in a way that stimulating to me via nostalgic childhood artwork. I love this book. I can bypass the Christian stuff in the front and back of the book (I mean, Christians are the majority religion in this country, so I assume most people are ok with how the stories are). What I am left with is a great group of stories I can enjoy and share with my kids someday. The more graphic bits are watered down as not to scare off younger kids (though they are Vikings and Thor is constantly warring with a giant or some other person or thing). Even the story of Freyja's necklace is written in a way where the main part of the story is intact without getting too suggestive for young kids.

I love the pictures and learning they were made with stones. I look forward to getting the Greek Myths in this series too. I think Christian and Pagan alike would get a lot out of this volume.
 
Great book for kids  Feb 28, 2008
I've been reading this book to my kids each night at bedtime. My 7-year old loves it. A great introduction to the Norse Myths. Well written and great illustrations as well.
 
The greatest book in existence.  Feb 27, 2008
This book, the text, and the illustrations inside are the sole key to happiness. If you buy this book, open it, and are not immediately happy, then you're a God damn Communist.


God Bless America, and God Bless D'Aulaires' Book of Norse Myths.
 
Greatness!  Dec 20, 2007
Along with D'Aulaire's Greek Myths, I checked this book out of the library every week. I absolutely adored looking at the pictures and reading the stories. A great, colorful book for any kid.
