The artwork is stunning & makes the myths come alive!

I bought 3 of the books in the mythology series. The Norse mythology book surprised me by presenting the Gods & Goddesses in an artistic portrayal that, along with the stories, makes this book a true winner. If you or anyone you may know who loves Norse mythology, get this book for them. Buy one for yourself too. For any age, whether reading to a child or an adult who is revisiting The tales of the Gods & Goddesses of the North.
