My nephew says, "I like the story a little bit, but some of the pages with pictures are dumb to me." I'm not sure what he is not enamored with. I thought that this book provided a very good introduction to who Thor is, and how he came to be a member of the superhero pantheon. I thought the illustrations were nice, if a little ethereal at times, but Thor is supposed to be a Norse god, so his homeland should look ethereal, if you ask me. Maybe the pictures might look a little to "fairy tale-ish" to a little kid that doesn't think of superheroes as coming from a fairy tale place.
