This book was a godsend, in more ways than one. A) it has gods in it, cool, crazy norse Gods. B) It was written by Neil Gaiman who is the God of Sci-Fi in my humble opinion and c) Goddess bless you c you rockstar, IT IS ONLY 104 pages! So if one is racing to catch-up book challenge wise it is a wonderful find.
Here is what happens in it-
“The winter isn’t ending. Nobody knows why.
And Odd has run away from home, even though he can barely walk and has to use a crutch.
Out in the forest he encounters a bear, a fox, and an eagle – three creatures with a strange story to tell.
Now Odd is faced with a stranger journey than he had ever imagined.
A journey to save Asgard, City of the Norse Gods, from the Frost Giants who have invaded it.
It’s going to take a very special kind of boy to defeat the most dangerous of all the Frost Giants and rescue the mighty Gods. Someone cheerful and infuriating and clever.
Someone just like Odd”
