Nice little story. It is well written and Gaiman has obviously done his share of research regarding norse mythology, but this is a story for children, and as an adult reader i found it a bit too simple.

Journal Entry 13 by wingAnonymousFinderwing at Bromma, Stockholm Sweden on Monday, June 10, 2013
Like Gaiman but this story is a little thin. Not because it is short but because it feels that the story never starts and then the book ends

Journal Entry 14 by wingHaugtussawing at Stavanger, Rogaland fylke Norway on Tuesday, June 18, 2013
The book arrived yesterday, and I started Reading it straight away.
I quite like the story. I do like the old norse mytholigy and this gives my some parts of it.

I also do like the Norwegian name Odd! I think it as a great name when travelling to English speaking countries.
"Hello, my name is Odd".
- maybe only topped if your surname is Aass.
"Hello, my name is Odd Aass":

Journal Entry 17 by wingAskeladdawing at Skien, Telemark fylke Norway on Saturday, June 22, 2013
I have just read the book, buildt on norrøn mythologi. I found that I like better the original myths, than this short booklet. The story made me a bit sad..
I wil try to find some more readers before I let the book travel on..

Journal Entry 18 by MadameDePressy at Kolbotn, Akershus fylke Norway on Sunday, June 23, 2013
...and so you did, Askeladda: you found me! : )
Just read this book before it travels on. Bit fun reading this from Askeladda - when the storys main figure - Odd - reminds a lot of "Askeladden" (main caracter in a lot of old norwegian fairytales).
Good luck with this olympic bookcrossing, Team Valhalla.
