Odd and the Frost Giants

After my last few posts, I feel that I need to start this post by quoting Monty Python… “And now for something completely different..!”

It’s been a cold weekend in the Seattle area, and we’ve looked out the window on a beautiful, frosty landscape each morning.  At the library yesterday, I found Neil Gaiman’s, Odd and the Frost Giants, and today I read it in one sitting and loved it! It’s the perfect read for a frosty morning!  It really is one that could become a classic, and would be wonderful to read aloud as a family, or to a group of school kids (my 6th graders would have loved it!).  It’s filled with fun and humor, of course, and is my new favorite Neil Gaiman book…for the moment.

    Okay, I’m completely there with you on the COLD. Down here in Federal Way we have a predicted high of 33 degrees. WHAT?!
    I’ve been meaning to read this one – Neil Gaiman never strikes out with me. Nice review!

    Brrrr, Celia!! It just seems to get colder and colder! I hope you’re staying warm at your place. You will love Odd when you get a chance to read it.

    You’ll love it, too, Kelly! I really didn’t know anything about it, but figured it would be fun since it was a Neil Gaiman. I didn’t expect to love it! Enjoy!
