Revealing and accessible tales

I enjoyed this re-telling of the Norse myths. It's a young adult level but I don't think that has ever stopped this senior from listening in that genre. My grandchildren like this book as well.

Still good

It is a rather simplistic view of the Norse gods! Still informative for those not well versed on the subject!

Change bad habits into good

it's beautiful, I LISTEN to it and almost exploded with happiness. I used the microwave to make fresh cookies to help me calm down. This is best listen when eating cookies on a warm day in the sun.
