really liked it
bookshelves: middle-grade, scandinavian-authors, mythology

Breezy guide to the Norse gods and major myths, as they pertain to the Magnus Chase series. The characteristics of the gods are fairly straightforward, but the myths are all referenced in things like interviews, instructional guides, and even some raps. Also a lullaby or two. Nonsense, unless you've read the first Magnus Chase book, but super fun if you have.

Also, it's directly leading up to book 2, which I didn't realize (I have already read book 2), with sort of a running gag/ongoing series of hints about Thor's missing hammer, and includes a sample chapter. Still, fun extra material for Magnus Chase fans (like me!).
