If you're new to Norse mythology, this book is a great place to start! Kevin Crossley-Holland is a master storyteller, but what really drew me into the stories were the gorgeous illustrations by Jeffrey Alan Love. The images are captivating and full of texture -- they make the stories really come alive. (Also - this is the perfect way to dive in deeper with Norse mythology if you're hooked after seeing Thor Ragnarok...just saying.)
