Ginnungagap? What's that?

Treasury of Norse Mythology; Stories of Intrigue, Trickery, Love and Revenge by Donna Jo Napoli. Illustrations by Christina Balit. National Geographic Children’s Books, 2015. Recommended for grades 4-7.

Dig all things Viking?  Do words like Gullinkambi and Yggdrasil make your head spin and your tongue tie up in knots?

Never fear, the team that brought you the Treasury of Greek Mythology and the Treasury of Egyptian Mythology is here to guide you through the complex world of the ancient Norse with their third volume in National Geographic’s exquisite mythology series. This handsome collection will be popular with fans of Rick Riordan’s Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard, the Dreamworks movie of Cressida Crowell’s  How to Train Your Dragon book series, and’s Thor: The Dark World.

Check out my review at Good Reads with Ronna. Thanks to Ronna Mandel for permission to provide an excerpt of the review on my blog and keep the book for my library.
