(black and white edition)

by A. and E. Keary

Description: Masterful retelling of the Norse myths with vivid pictures of the heroes, including Thor with his hammer, Iduna with her apples, and Loki with his tricks and schemings. Inhabiting a harsh world where character is revealed in action, some draw admiration for their feats of superhuman strength, overcoming apparently insurmountable challenges, while others stoop to deceitful action with disastrous results. A study in contrasts, not without humor, giving the reader lots to ponder.
