Summary

An illustrated anthology of Norse myths featuring Odin, Thor and Loki.

The gods, led by all-powerful Odin and mighty Thor, are caught in a terrifying struggle for power with the fearsome giants. They must battle them using all their cunning and strength. But the gods' greatest enemy lurks among them: the trickster Loki. Twisted by spite, his scheming will ultimately bring about the final great battle of Ragnarok.

NOTE : Although this could be used by keen younger readers, the style and some of the content is better suited to a teen audience. For example, a mason uses the phrase "a brothel of goddesses"
