Charles Kovacs presents a retelling of the stories of Norse mythology recommended for the Waldorf curriculum, class four (ages 9 to 10). Included are myths on creation, Odin and Mimir, Thor and Thialfi, Idun, Sif, and Loki.

Charles Kovacs (1907–2001) was born in Vienna, Austria. He left in 1938 and joined the British Army in East Africa. After the War he settled in Britain, and in 1956 he took over a class at the Rudolf Steiner School in Edinburgh, where he remained a class teacher until his retirement in 1976. He died in 2001. His extensive lesson notes have been a useful and inspiring resource material for many teachers; he also gave over 300 lectures to adults and was in demand as a speaker. He is the author of Parsifal and the Search for the Grail, The Age of Revolution, Ancient Greece, The Age of Discovery, Ancient Rome, Botany, Muscles and Bones, The Human Being and the Animal World, The Spiritual Background to Christian Festivals and The Apocalypse in Rudolf Steiner's Lecture Series.
