Odd and the Frost Giants

Odd and the Frost Giants by Neil Gaiman

A fun little child's book drawing on Norse mythology for a new tale. 

Odd (who was odd, but that's a coincidence) is lame after an accident with an ax, after his father died.  One year, winter is very late, and one day, he leaves the quarrelsome village to stay in his dead father's woodcutting hut.

A fox comes to find him there.

It involves honey, a frozen waterfall where there are rainbows when it flows, a spring in the woods, questions of beauty, Odd's smile, where Odd's mother came from, and more.
