Gods and Supernatural Creatures
Much of what we know of Old Norse mythology is drawn from the Prose Edda,
written in the 13th century by Icelandic chieftain/scholar Snorri Sturluson.
This book presents both children and adults with a delightful introduction to Norse myth,
its cosmology and its imagery of the cycles of nature, as interpreted
by modern readers of the Edda.
Florence Helga Thibault’s charming illustrations bring the stories
of the gods to life, while Anna Kristín Ásbjörnsdóttir has retold the
tales with children in mind – though without oversimplifying the language.
