The thrilling, wintry Nordic tale by Neil Gaiman, who weaves a magical story of legend and adventure that will enchant readers from beginning to end. Odd, a young Viking boy, is left fatherless following a raid. In his icy, ancient world there is no mercy for an unlucky soul with a crushed foot and no one to protect him. Fleeing to the woods, Odd stumbles upon and releases a trapped bear...and then Odd's destiny begins to change. The eagle, bear, and fox Odd encounters are Norse gods, trapped in animal form by the evil frost giant who has conquered Asgard, the city of the gods. Now our hero must reclaim Thor's hammer, outwit the frost giants and release the gods...Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Neil GaimanPublisher: HarperCollinsPublished: 09/22/2009ISBN: 9780061671739Pages: 117Weight: 0.57lbsSize: 7.60h x 5.30w x 0.60dAward: Nene Award - NomineeAward: West Virginia Children's Book Award - NomineeAward: Sequoyah Book Awards - NomineeAward: Midwest Booksellers' Choice Award - Honor BookAward: Rhode Island Children's Book Awards - NomineeAward: Indies Choice Book Awards - Honor BookAward: Cybils - FinalistReview Citations: Booklist 07/01/2009 pg. 61Publishers Weekly 08/17/2009 pg. 62Kirkus Review - Children 09/15/2009School Library Journal 10/01/2009 pg. 126Horn Book Magazine 11/01/2009 pg. 672Asimov's Science Fiction 02/01/2010 pg. 109Bulletin of Ctr for Child Bks 02/01/2010Hornbook Guide to Children 01/01/2010 - Superior,Well Above AverageBookPage 10/01/2009Accelerated Reader Quiz #/Name: 132851 / Odd and the Frost GiantsReading Level: 5 / Interest Level: Middle Grade / Point Value: 2
