Noorse goden Book Excerpt:

In Noorse goden combineert bestsellerauteur Neil Gaiman de oude verhalen uit de mythologie van de Vikingen met de stijl van de 21e eeuw. Voor de fans van Stephen Fry’s Mythos. In de New York Times-bestseller Noorse goden verwerkt Neil Gaiman, bekend van o.a. de prijswinnende novelle Coraline en de cult-serie American Gods, de losse Noorse mythen tot een doorlopend verhaal. Noorse goden begint met het ontstaan van de legendarische negen werelden en duikt dan in de levens van goden, dwergen en reuzen. Zo moet Thor zich vermommen als vrouw – lastig, met een baard en onstilbare honger – om zijn gestolen hamer terug te krijgen. Het bloed van Kvasir – de scherpzinnigste god van allen – wordt in honingwijn veranderd en geeft de drinkers ervan magische krachten. Het boek bereikt zijn piek aan het einde met het epische verhaal van Ragnarok: de ondergang van de goden en de geboorte van een nieuwe tijd en nieuwe mensen. Perfect voor de fans van Stephen Fry’s Mythos. ‘Een pakkende, spannende en eerlijk gezegd prachtige vertelling van deze beroemde verhalen.’ – The Washington Post ‘Uitzonderlijk. Gaiman heeft een moderne interpretatie van de Vikingverhalen geschreven.’ – The Atlantic ’Door oude Noorse mythologie te combineren met de stijl van de 21e eeuw, weet Gaiman een geheel genre nieuw leven in te blazen voor de moderne lezer.’ – Newsweek

D Aulaires Book of Animals Book Excerpt:

THE CELEBRATED HUSBAND-AND-WIFE TEAM OF INGRI AND EDGAR PARIN D’AULAIRE prepared this exceptionally beautiful volume for their own son Ola, and it is as fresh and enchanting today as it was when it first sprung from their imaginations. D’Aulaires’ Book of Animals introduces young children to the creatures of every continent. Here more than fifty animals lithographed in full color form one side of a book that can be read page by page or unfolded to form a continuous panorama; the flipside of the panorama reveals the nighttime world of the animals in the very same settings. Each tableau presents the subjects in their native environments—from the tropical to the arctic—and is rendered with the exemplary richness of color and delightful understanding of the children’s world that distinguish the d’Aulaires’ much-loved retellings of the Norse and Greek myths and their wildly playful Book of Trolls. Young children, meeting animals from all over the world for the first time, will be delighted not only with the animals themselves but with the simple and engaging text which provides information about the way they act, the world they live in, and—best of all—the sounds they make. D’Aulaires’ Book of Animals is not only a perfect picture book for preschoolers, but a work of art that can be enjoyed by all.

The Terrible Troll Bird Book Excerpt:

One summer’s eve Ola, Lina, Sina, and Trina leave their village to gather firewood in the forest, when they’re surprised by the hideous call of the terrible troll-bird, a giant rooster who pops up out of the treetops and swoops down to devour their beloved horse Blakken. Little does the terrible troll-bird know that in Ola, Lina, Sina, and Trina he has finally met his match: his terrible days of terrorizing are over. Before long the whole village is celebrating the monster’s demise, and even the gnomes and hulder-maidens are coming out of their hiding places in the woods to participate in a great feast. All celebration is cut short, though, with the startling appearance of two monstrous moss-grown trolls even more terrible than the terrible troll-bird himself. Luckily, the children rise to the occasion once more, saving the day before they set out on a splendid new adventure. Filled with vibrant illustrations and telling a story of childhood ingenuity and bravery, The Terrible Troll-Bird is a delightful companion to Ingri and Edgar Parin d’Aulaire’s more comprehensive books of Norwegian folklore, D’Aulaires’ Book of Norse Myths and D’Aulaires’ Book of Trolls.

De goden van de Olympus Book Excerpt:

Barbara Graziosi schrijft in 'De goden van Olympus' over de twaalf goden die op de Griekse berg de Olympus woonden: van Aphrodite tot Zeus. Deze Griekse goden gelden als de kleurrijkste personages uit de klassieke oudheid. Graziosi (hoogleraar klassieke talen aan de Universiteit van Durham) beschrijft hun reizen en transformaties over de hele wereld: hoe de goden in het oude Egypte de gedaante van farao's aannamen, hoe ze in het Romeinse rijk als goden onder een andere naam opdoken, hoe ze het christendom en de islam overleefden en hoe ze tot op de dag van vandaag schilders, schrijvers en andere kunstenaars inspireren. Barbara Graziosi laat met ' De goden van Olympus' zien hoezeer wij deel uitmaken van deze klassieke, rijke beschaving.

Pagan Portals Thor Book Excerpt:

Thor is an immensely popular God but also one of contradictions, whose complexity is sometimes underrated. Often depicted as oafish, he was clever enough to outwit the dwarf Alviss (All-wise). A god of storms and thunder, he brought fertility and blessed brides at weddings and although a defender of civilization and order, he usually travelled with a trickster deity. Pagan Portals - Thor is an introductory book that examines both history and mythology, untangling older beliefs from modern pop-culture.
