Loki, the deity of mischief; Gerda, the beautiful goddess of light; Odin, the chief of all the gods; and other immortal figures of Norse mythology come vividly to life in this beautifully illustrated book for young readers.
The exciting collection of 29 tales is myth at its best, narrating the adventures of (among others) Thor, the thunder god, son of Odin; Baldur, another son of Odin, a radiant god of beauty, purity, and peace; and Freya, the goddess of fertility and beauty. Closely bound to Asgard, their mythologic home, these mighty warriors are powerful beings, capable of superhuman feats, but still exhibit very human weaknesses.
Handed down from generation to generation, the thrilling tales of gods on earth and their miraculous feats will charm young readers with their powerful stories of magic and mystery.
