Odd and the Frost Giants - Neil Gaiman

This is a lovely little book with a charming coming of age story set in the world of Norse Mythology. Odd is a crippled boy who falls into the company of the gods Odin, Thor and Loki, and is able to help them regain Asgard from a frost giant who had overpowered and thrown the gods out to Midgard.

The book is currently only available in Britain (it was a World Reading Day selection), and I snagged it from Amazon.co.uk. It only costs a pound, so when you include shipping, it doesn’t seem quite as expensive as it could be. I definitely do hope they make it more widely available to American audiences. I think it would well received.
