The official Neil Gaiman Website for younger Readers
Odd, a young Viking boy, is left fatherless following a raid, and 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.
This new edition of the thrilling, wintry Nordic tale weaves a truly magical story of legend and adventure that will grip and enchant readers from beginning to end. Enhanced with metallic silver ink, this new heavily illustrated edition has an oversized trim, much like the New York Times bestselling The Sleeper and the Spindle.
