This series is an adaptation of the book, Norse Mythology that Neil Gaiman published in 2017. Presented in this volume are a few of the major myths of Norse mythology: the creation of the world in Odin’s slaying of the giant Ymir; how Odin lost his eye but gained all his wisdom; the treasures of the gods obtained by Loki as he pitted two dwarf craftsmen brothers against each other; the way in which the Aesir gods got their wall around Asgard; Loki’s children and how Odin dealt with all of them; and, the “marriage” of Thor, pretending to be Freya, to a giant who stole his hammer.
