    1 thought on “The Adventures of Thor the Thunder God”

    1. First sentence: Long, long ago, when the Vikings ruled the seas, people loved to tell stories about gods and giants. Renowned as warriors and sailors, the Vikings were also great storytellers. Their most treasured stories were about a god named Thor.Premise/plot: This is a story book for elementary readers. It contains nine stories--all generously illustrated. The stories are: "Why Thor Is Called the Thunder God," "The Giants," "Thor's Family," "Loki's Bet," "Tialvi and the Billy Goats," "A Duel [...]

    2. Contains background information about Thor, describing his parentage, why he is called the Thunder God, and why the Vikings loved him best of all the gods. Then progresses to several stories about Thor's adventures. The illustrations are bold and engaging, with an appropriately mythical feel without seeming old-fashioned. A bit long for younger readers, but the older picture book crowd with an interest in mythology or learning more about Thor (now that Marvel has made him popular again!) will li [...]

    3. A picture book with mostly beautifully illustrated re-tellings of the adventures of Thor and Loki. Not so much of an anthropological text. It would be a good book to pick up and read without any actual knowledge of Norse mythology, just to enjoy the stories.

    4. This is a fun retelling of some mythology stories about Thor. It includes stories about his goats, Loki's trickery, cross dressing to fool giants, and how his hammer came to him. I enjoyed the art included. The pictures made the story much more interesting to read. I love it when I find a good, long, picture book retelling myths.

    5. Wonderful book. Such a great find. It's far and away the best one I've seen on Norse mythology for kids. My son, who loves Norse mythology and Thor in particular, absolutely loved it. Wonderful illustrations, engaging stories.

    6. It was nice to read some Norse mythology. The "Thor" and "Avenger" movies have peaked my interest a bit. I really didn't know that Loki was Odin's foster brother instead of Thor's and Frigga was a Jotun.

    7. An awesome book about Thor for kids. Aimed more so at ages 7-12 but my younger sons loved it when I read it to them, too. Great pictures.

    8. Fantastic book with great illustrations about Thor the Thunder God of Norse Mythology and his adventures. Highly recommended.

    9. The God Thor and his story. I liked the pictures and the way the story flowed in chapters that were different stories.
