Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This colorful graphic novel recounts amazing and enchanting stories about Norse mythology. I was thrilled to review this book because my knowledge on Norse myths is limited. The book had vibrant and action-packed pictures that depicted the story perfectly and was written in an easy-to-understand format. This graphic novel has four colorful tales in one suspenseful book! This book tells about the journeys, adventures, and misadventures of Thor (the god of thunder and lightning), his brother Loki (a small giant who was raised with the gods), Baldur (the god of light), and their father Odin (the all-father/leader of the gods). This book has tales about giants, lies, deceit, love, and betrayal in amazing and vivid pictures. To top it off, this book also has a glossary in the back that explains every character in the book! The glossary was very helpful since a few characters have similar names. I recommend this book for kids ages 10 and older because there are some violent scenes that might make younger audiences uncomfortable. Overall, I loved this book! 5 stars!!
