An extraordinary and enthralling illustrated anthology of Norse Myths from a Carnegie-Medal winning author.

The gods of the Vikings come to life as never before in this extraordinary illustrated anthology by Carnegie Medal-winning author Kevin Crossley-Holland and artist Jeffrey Alan Love.

These dramatic, enthralling and atmospheric tales are based on the Scandinavian myth cycle - one of the greatest and most culturally significant stories in the world - and tell of Odin with his one eye, Thor with his mighty hammer and Loki, the red-haired, shape-shifting trickster.

In this stunning collection of myths, the strange world of ancient magic, giants, dwarfs and monsters is unforgettably imagined.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'[...] a masterly version, which is also a splendid object [...] It is powerfully illustrated by Jeffrey Alan Love [...] It is spectacular and enjoyable, as well as essential cultural bedrock.' - The Sunday Times 

'Dramatically re-told by Norse expert Crossley-Holland and stunningly illustrated with dark, brooding figures on every page, this is a book to be treasured for generations' - The Daily Mail 

'Norse Myths [...] will delight both the newcomer and the Norse aficionado, instantly immersing its reader in the tragedy and treachery synonymous with the Scandinavian pantheon. Crossley-Holland's well-forged words, which feel as right in the mind as a swords hilt in the hand, are the perfect medium for these bloody, compelling tales, with their rich poetry [...]interleaved with Jeffrey Alan Love's iron-dark, silhouetted images.' - The Guardian
