“This book is told in a folkloric narrative and is perfect for people who are looking for these myths in in story form, rather than academic. While the style of storytelling is a bit different from newer books (this was originally published in 1920 as "The Sons of Odin") they are told very well. I was looking for a book that retold the myths, rather than talk about them, and I found a very good one.”Jeffy wrote this review Wednesday, May 11, 2011.

“This is a very readable collection of Norse folklore. If you happen to be Asatru (like me) and have children, nieces or nephews, or young family members, this would be a good choice for educating them about our literature. It is meant primarily for younger readers, but people of all ages can enjoy it. It is missing some important lore, such as the Song of Rig, but that doesn't really prevent it from being a classic. The illustrations & paintings are beautiful works by Willy Pogany. Recommended.”Jeff S wrote this review Sunday, January 9, 2011. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
