by Neil Gaiman
The latest hotness in the Norse Mythology world. I’ve read you some stories from this one in class, and you loved them. (If you haven’t had Mythology yet, I’ll read you some stories from this one in class, and you’ll love them.)
Very much a story book, Gaiman focuses solely on telling good tales. His style is spare, but lyrical. If you’ve got some time on your hands, here he is talking to Stephen Fry about it (Fry has just released a book of Greek myths, himself) and reading a selection about Fenris the wolf. Oh, Fry reads a myth about King Midas, too, and a guy draws pictures the whole time. 🤣
We used to have this one in the RCHS library, but it’s evidently gone missing, or something? They might get another one, though, so keep your eyes peeled. You can also find it at Amazon, or Barnes & Noble in the mall or wherever.
