Staff Reviews


I love the deceptive simplicity, humour & magic of this book. Odd rescues a bear in difficulty, and is drawn into a quest to help three gods return to their home in Asgard. Gaiman's prose is clear and uncluttered and his sense of adventure finely balanced: cosy, not safe. He delights, but never coddles the reader. I highly recommend this tale for adults as well as young people.

“In a village in ancient Norway, Odd loses his father and has a terrible accident, which shatters his leg. When winter comes, Odd removes himself to the woods only to be confronted by three animals -- a bear, a fox, and an eagle -- who set the stage for a real twist of Norse mythology. This is a wonderful story!”
