Odd and the Frost Giant
by Neil Gaiman

Goodreads synopsis:
The winter isn't ending. Nobody knows why. And Odd has run away from home, even though he can barely walk and has to use a crutch. Out in the forest he encounters a bear, a fox, and an eagle - three creatures with a strange story to tell. Now Odd is faced with a stranger journey than he had ever imagined. A journey to save Asgard, City of the Norse Gods, from the Frost Giants who have invaded it. It's going to take a very special kind of boy to defeat the most dangerous of all the Frost Giants and rescue the mighty Gods. Someone cheerful and infuriating and clever. Someone just like Odd...

I spotted this while I was out shopping a couple of weeks ago, and I immediately fell in love with it. I'm a huge fan of Neil Gaiman anyway, but I've just read his most recent book for children, Unfortunately, The Milk, and I adored it. So as soon as I saw this in the teen section in one of the bigger branches of Waterstones, I knew I had to put it straight on my wishlist.
It's nice and wintery, so it might have to go on a Christmas list ;)

What are you putting on your wishlist this week? Have you started a Christmas book list yet?

I need to start reading Gaiman, I feel like the only one who hasn't read any of his books :X
I hope you get it soon!

This is a great choice! I read it last year, and thought it was terrific! But really, you can't go wrong with Neil Gaiman. :)

I have yet to read a Gaiman book! This one looks really fun though, and I like that it's about Norse Gods! :D
