TREASURY OF NORSE MYTHOLOGY
By Donna Jo Napoli illustrated by Christina Balit. Published by National Geographic Society 2015. 70 paintings.
The challenge of painting this book was the pallete I decided to use. I felt it was quite important to keep the tone muted and quite cold.
“Witty, informative, and entertaining, this collection of Norse myths will satisfy the storyteller at heart, whether read aloud or silently. The stories are compiled in an attractive, oversize volume. Pages feature intricate borders and larger-than-life characters. VERDICT Buy it, and if space is an issue, weed to make it fit.”
