In this extravagant world, gods and men play practical jokes and dirty tricks: a sleeping Frost Giant produces the first human beings from his own sweat, an evil dwarf is conned out of claiming a beautiful woman for his bride, and the god Thor resorts to cross-dressing to retrieve his beloved hammer! These classic retellings of Viking tales are on one level thrilling stories of battles, contests, quests, and love-matches- on the other, they are profound myths that explain the mysteries of creation, life, love, death, and rebirth. Written for ages 8-12. Full-color illustrations by Gillian McClure. 8 1/2 x 11.
