Puffin Classics - award-winning stories brought to life for a new generation.

The great Norse sagas are full of magic and heroic deeds. Odin's wanderings, Thor's hammer, the death of Bakkur, the vision of Ragnarok - tales which have been told since time immemorial - are given a fresh life in this version, written as one continuous exciting adventure story.

With a brilliant introduction by Guardian Children's Fiction prize-winner, Michelle Paver.

Puffin Classics contain additional endnotes for children including an author profile, a guide to who's who, activities and more.
