    A.L. Kaplan's interpretation of Thor, Freyja, Loki, and the Aesir pantheon is a playful delight for young and older readers. Thor's burgeoning belly, Loki's red hair and pointy nose, and Freyja's penchant for lounging before stirring to action are amusing. Their collaboration will bring a smile to the faces of and hearts of readers. Read Full Review

    After a thunderstorm, The Storyteller calms his old friend with a tale of adventure. In it, Thor asks Loki to help him find a missing heirloom. Loki then uses deceptive methods to aid in his search. He finds the missing object. But, when the new owner refuses to return it, Loki and Thor devise a dramatic recovery plan.The Story: I really like how this story forwards the discussion of what is gender normative. Thor is presented as burly and boorish with hyper masculine traits. However, when he pretends to be the Goddess Freyja, his potential suitor is immediately charmed. Then, those same traits are viewed as feminine and delightful. This is a fun story about transformations, and dressing to the nines, that is perfect for Pride month.The Art:Traditional drawings are complimented by bright colors that match the perfectly match the tone of the story. Character expression and form are highlighted. The action scenes are well done, and the panels are very engaging. Read Full Review
