it was ok

First off, the author specifically states that this ebook was formatted to introduce young children to Norse Mythology. It was developed by teachers for teachers and others wanting to teach their kids about mythology from our northern ancestors.

As such, it is very much a beginner's guide to Norse Mythology. It gives all the more famous stories, most notoriously the ones leading up to Ragnarok and the one with Thor in a dress. Having said that, a lot of the details are missing - there are a lot of duels during Ragnarok which the book glossed over. Mythology is also notorious for violence, killing, raping, and torture, which the book also glosses over.

If you want to get into Norse Mythology this might be a good place to start, but you will need find other resources for more in depth research.
