Odd and the Frost Giants, by Neil Gaiman

“He glanced up, but there was no sign of the Rainbow Bridge. Silently, across the thick snow, the fox and the bear were walking towards him. And then, with a rattle and a clatter, the eagle landed on a branch beside him, making the snow on the branch fall flump to the ground. The eagle looked less crazy now, though Odd. And then, it looks bigger.

    1. This one’s a kids book- maybe “middle grade”? But it does a nice job capturing the spirit of the Norse mythology it’s based on. I admit, I love his “young adult” stuff for their, sort of, elegant simplicity…. Graveyard Book being my favorite of all of his.

    1. There were no good quotes on page 56 of this book, but it was good for its age group, but not one I’d recommend starting with unless you’re a big fan of Norse mythology.
