D'Aulaires' Book of Norse Myths
In the same style as D'Aulaire's Book of Greek Myths, this beautifully illustrated book brings the Norse myths to life for young readers. Thirty-one chapters tell the stories of the first gods and giants, the creation of the world, the creation of man, Yggdrasil the world tree, Asgard and the Aesir gods, the gods and goddesses, the Valkyries and Valhalla, Regnarokk (the end of the gods), and the new world. In true D'Aulaire style the stories are lavishly illustrated, with many full-page illustrations. A reader's guide can be found at the end of the book, which is a combination glossary/pronunciation guide/index. If you enjoyed D'Aulaire's Book of Greek Myths, you are sure to find this collection with all its lesser-known stories a real treasure! 160 pgs, hc. Jess
