The Adventures of Thor the Thunder God

book coverThe Adventures of Thor the Thunder God by Lisa Lunge-Larsen. Illustrated by Jim Madsen So there’s a movie about Thor coming out, and somehow the boy, despite it being far too old for him, has picked up on this and is wildly interested in Thor. A movie based loosely (I presume) on comic books, which are based loosely on old Norse legends. Naturally I looked for something as close to the original as possible, and found this rare collection of stories all about Thor. We have stories of how Thor got his hammer, of a visit to mortals, and of course, how his hammer, Mjolnir, was lost and recovered. The large, full-page illustrations look something in between your classic fairy-tale oil and animation, which works well. This is a great book for young would-be Thor admirers.
