Quirky story of a boy & three Norse gods.

Short but really wonderful story. I'm definitely going to read this to my son. ( )

I was also able to borrow a copy of the illustrated ebook. The illustrations were difficult to view and I needed to use the zoom function to make out the details. Having said that, at least the zoom function worked in this instance. Judging by photos posted online, it looks as though illustrations in the traditional print copies are much easier to view and appreciate. ( )

It's a Gaiman fairytale, about a wonderful boy among the vikings and their gods, and that's all you need to know. ( )

I highly recommend the illustrated edition, as Riddell's work adds a lot of depth to Gaiman's story. This is a great tale about a boy with a limp who finds himself facing a giant at Asgard to help out Thor, Loki and Odin. Odd is likable and Gaiman achieves a lot of depth in a short amount of pages. If you're a fan of either Gaiman or Riddell, you should pick this up! ( )

Det är en liten medryckande saga om mod, mognad och försoning med sin livslott. Hur otroligt det än kan verka, när man står på botten av ett köldhål, visar Neil Gaiman att även den strängaste vargavinter har ett slut.
