    1. Meant for younger readers but still useful for an introduction. It does miss some specifics, but as an overview I would recommend it.


    2. Around fifth or sixth grade I was suddenly seized by Viking mania, and consumed every book I could find on their adventures, exploits, gods and heroes. This was one of the best books in the library, combining the mythos of Odin and his house of gods with tales of mortal heroes from the sagas and eddas.


    3. Livy and I didn't finish this, but we enjoyed the 3/4 of it that we read. Excellent retellings of Norse myths and legends, including Beowulf and the story of Sigurd. I would recommend it to anyone interested in the literature of the Norse or Anglo-Saxons.
