Odd and the Frost Giants (World Book Day edition)

Odd and the Frost Giants - Neil Gaiman, Mark Buckingham Another nice little Gaiman story, making clever use of Norse Mythology - especially the snide remarks about Loki and a certain stallion ;-) - but in a style typically his own. Quite an enjoyable little read.
