Odd and the Frost Giants by Neil Gaiman
Odd walks away from his village during an incredibly long winter. While staying at his late father's woodcutting hut in the forest, he meets a fox, a bear and an eagle. Turns out they are the Norse gods turned into animals by a Frost Giant. Now Odd must help them retake Asgard.
This was a really quick book to read -- like many of Gaiman's books. I read it on my lunch break. It read like a myth with a few of Gaiman's touches thrown in. This would be a book to hand off to those looking for mythology stories.
