Thor’s Wedding Day


A hilarious retelling of the Norse myth that has Thor dressing as the goddess Freya in order to retrieve his stolen hammer.

It all begins when Thor’s hammer goes missing. Loki, the god of mischief, comes up with an idea to get the hammer back, and before you know it, Thor is dressed in fancy finery and packing off to be married to Thrym, the king of giants and Thor’s sworn enemy

Luckily, Thialfi the goat boy—along with his charges Grinder and Gat-Tooth—have come along. Working behind the scenes, Thialfi may just be able to save the day… which is only fair, since it’s his fault the hammer was stolen in the first place!

Bruce says: I think this is one of my three funniest books. It didn’t do as well as we had hoped, and looking back I think the title was a mistake. I should have just called it THOR BASHES SOME GIANTS!

Booklist liked it, though:  “Coville takes a Norse poem called the Thrymskvitha and turns it into a delightful prose romp!”
