Johan Egerkrans

A thrilling recreation of the best of Norse (Nordic) mythology by author-illustrator Johan Egerkranz, from the fateful Creation Myth of the killing of Ymer, the first giant, by Odin and his brothers, to the final destruction of the gods at Ragnarök. Familiar tales from both Eddas are given vivid new life with the addition of information about the fabulous creatures of Aasgaard, Jotenheim and the Netherworld. A gorgeously illustrated book of giants, dwarves, monsters and heroes, this is a definitive work for readers of all ages.
