I try to get my hands on anything Gaiman writes. Sometimes it is hit or miss but most of the time it's a hit. I like this short and easy read. It is definitely for young readers and must be taken that way. It a very simple take on Norse mythology. It's about a boy named Odd who is crippled but that has never got him down. He always smiles no matter what happens. When he runs away from home because of his stepfather he makes friends with some animals by helping them out. He ends up finding out that these animals are more than meets the eye. Odd sets out on a quest to help his friends and this book is about his quest. A quick and enjoyable read.
