Now in paperback, Ingri and Edgar Parin d’Aulaires’ beloved, wondrously illustrated collection of Norse mythology.

The Caldecott medal-winning d’Aulaires once again captivate their young audience with this beautifully illustrated introduction to Norse legends, telling stories of Odin the All-father, Thor the Thunder-god and the theft of his hammer, Loki the mischievous god of the Jotun Race, and Ragnarokk, the destiny of the gods. Children meet Bragi, the god of poetry, and the famous Valkyrie maidens, among other gods, goddesses, heroes, and giants.

Illustrations throughout depict the wondrous other world of Norse folklore and its fantastical Northern landscape.

About the Author

Ingri Mortenson d'Aulaire (1904–1980) and Edgar Parin d’Aulaire (1898–1986) met at art school in Munich in 1921. The couple married in Norway in 1925 and moved to America in the late 1920s. Encouraged to pursue children’s literature by the head librarian in the juvenile department at the New York Public Library, the d’Aulaires published their first children’s book in 1931. The d’Aulaires worked as a team on both art and text throughout their joint career. Together they published more than two dozen children’s books, many of them based around folklore and myth.

Michael Chabon is the author of eight novels, most recently Moonglow, and several collections of short fiction and essays, including the 2019 volume Bookends: Collected Intros and Outros. His novel The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay won the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.
