Odd and the Frost Giants by Neil Gaiman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Odd is not named for being different from others in his village, but for the tip of a blade. Odd is, however, very odd. He has a smile that baffles everyone, and a bad leg that doesn't seem to bother him much. When his step-family and fellow villagers become restless at the end of a very long winter, Odd sets out on an adventure that will take him all the way to Asgard and to the rescue of the Gods who live there. An excellent fairy tale with an excellent hero who we hope will be back in future books.
