Neil Gaiman takes listeners on a wild and magical trip to the land of giants and gods and back. In a village in ancient Norway lives a boy named Odd, and he's had some very bad luck: His father perished in a Viking expedition; a tree fell on and shattered his leg; the endless freezing winter is making villagers dangerously grumpy. Out in the forest Odd encounters a bear, a fox, and an eagle-three creatures with a strange story to tell. Now Odd is forced on a journey to save Asgard, city of the gods, from the Frost Giants who have invaded it. It's going to take a very special kind of twelve-year-old boy to outwit the Frost Giants, restore peace to the city of gods, and end the long winter. Someone cheerful and infuriating and clever. . . . Someone just like Odd. . .

This is one of two Gaiman stories that did disappoint me--too simplistic. But Gaiman, as usual, reads it well.

I still love to read children's books. This book, by one of my favorite authors, reads like a folktale and, for me, did not disappoint. I specifically chose the audio version because it was read by Neil Gaiman himself, who has a wonderful voice for storytelling.
