The Children of Odin
by Padraic Colum

Long ago, in a Northern paradise called Asgard, dwelt many gods and goddesses. They were wise and they were beautiful. They lived in peace, untouched by evil...until the day the Giants from Jotunheim cast envious eyes upon their happiness.... Padraic Colum has been faithful to these old Norse myths, but he has made them his own. His stories speak quickly to children, for they are filled with the rich, musical narrative of the storyteller, flashing new beauty and truth. First published in 1928, these myths have uncovered the joy of reading great literature for many. Includes the original illustrations by Willy Pogany.

The Children of Odin: Nordic Gods and Heroes (Barnes & Noble Library of Essential Reading) 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 14 reviews.

A very poor quality rendering of a really delightful telling of the Edda. The OCR system routinely mis-translated characters and generally shattered the layout of woodcuts throughout the text. This version should be corrected, or, pulled from distribution by Barnes & Noble -- it damages their brand to offer such material... even when free.
