The Children of Odin: The Book of
Northern Myths by Padraic Colum, illustrations by Willy
Pogany. A collection of Norse myths and legends, featuring gods such as Odin and
Thor, as retold by Padraic Colum.
Before time as we know it began, gods and goddesses
lived in the city of Asgard. Odin All Father crossed the
Rainbow Bridge to walk among men in Midgard. Thor
defended Asgard with his mighty hammer. Mischievous Loki
was constantly getting into trouble with the other gods,
and dragons and giants walked free. This collection of
Norse sagas retold by author Padraic Colum gives us a
sense of that magical time when the world was filled
with powers and wonders we can hardly imagine.
Paper, 288 pages. Ages 10-14.
