“Odd meant the tip of a blade, and it was a lucky name.” Odd isn’t so lucky, though. His father died on a Viking expedition, and Odd’s leg is crippled due to a horrible accident. Odd’s mother, a lovely woman from Scotland, sings less and less since his father’s death. And now, winter in Norway won’t end. When Odd leaves the village, determined never to go back, he meets a fox, a bear, and an eagle – Loki, Thor, and Odin. The Frost Giants have taken over Asgard, the Gods’ home, transformed the three into animals, and banished them to the mortal land of Midgard. Odd must help the Gods by traveling to Asgard and defeating the Frost Giants himself. It will take someone clever and cheerful and absolutely infuriating to save both Asgard and Midgard. Someone like Odd… Norse mythology, excitement, and adventure, all in a book that kids from fourth to twelfth grade will understand and love.
