It is beautifully illustrated, if you didn't know the old norse stories I can see why you might think it is a great book. Unfortunately the writer doesn't really understand the topic they've written about.
Wholeheartedly recommend for all kids, the writing is simple yet engaging and provides a really kid-friendly yet accurate telling of Norse Mythology.
A must-have for every child's library
