Norse Mythology

Norse Mythology is by Neil Gaiman. A wonderful collection of Norse mythology. Gaiman takes the tales from the Prose Edda and Poetic Edda, and makes them understandable and easy to read. We learn of the beginning of the gods, various stories of their adventures, and the end of the gods when Ragnarok comes. The stories of the strong, but not so bright, Thor; Loki, who is nothing but trouble and still manages to save the gods numerous times; and all the other gods of Norse mythology. A beautiful rendering of the stories central to Norse myths and legends.

Ratings: 9th grade - 8 out of 10 - AC (some mature thematic content).
