Synopsis

The Unofficial Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard Companion The Norse Heroes, Monsters and Myths Behind the Hit Series by Peter Aperlo

Age range 9 to 12Fascinating background facts, stories and mythological information for the upcoming Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard series.The much anticipated first book in the Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard series is about to be released and long-time fans of best-selling author Rick Riordan can't wait to follow the adventure of his newest hero-Magnus Chase. However, unlike Riordan's previous series that placed protagonist Percy Jackson in a magical world based on Greek mythology, these new thrillers follow Magnus' adventure in an entirely different world, one populated by Norse gods and monsters. Conceived and written specifically for young adult readers, this enjoyable and informative educational companion offers an in-depth look into the exciting stories and characters of Norse mythology. The ancient stories are retold like modern thrillers in this fast-paced and informative primer. Containing over 50 black-and-white illustrations of gods and monsters, it allows eager readers to have fun while becoming experts on the powerful god Odin, his fearless wife Frigg, shape-shifting Loki and hammer-wielding Thor.
