Grade 4 curriculum: Norse Mythology

Norse mythology
by Charles Kovacs
Cost is about R100 to R150 depending on the exchange rate. Book Depository does not charge for shipping. Loot shipping is free for orders over R230 so even if the exchange rate is not doing too well, it might still be cheaper to buy from Book Depository if you are getting a single book.

"Charles Kovacs' enchanting retelling of Norse mythology include myths on creation, Odin and Mimir, Thor and Thialfi, Idun, Sif and Loki, as well as stories of tyrannical giants and greedy dwarfs."
