Treasury of Norse Mythology: Stories of Intrigue, Trickery, Love, and Revenge

by Donna Jo Napoli

This was a collection of stories from Norse mythology.  There was a lot of murder, intrigue, and gods behaving badly. Plus the artwork is gorgeous. This was probably the first example of Survivor. The only problem was that it could have probably been told with more excitement. I think that kids might put this down after a story or two. I’m not saying change the stories, but they definitely could have a more dramatic element. These are the kids raised on Harry Potter, Goosebumps, etc. Kids today need more to keep them reading.
