From Booklist:

Thise well-received and accessible book for young adults has been updated. It is part of an expanded Mythology A to Z series that also includes volumes on Egyptian (2000), Japanese (2003), and Greek and Roman mythology (2003). Other volumes will cover African, Celtic, Chinese, Native American, and South and Meso-American mythologies. Norse Mythology A to Z contains approximately 400 entries with almost 70 new topics. Like other volumes in the series, it features occasional black-and-white illustrations--some full page--a detailed index, and extensive cross-referencing. It also offers a bibliography of mainly adult-level books published the past several decades.

Not as visually enticing as the DK Illustrated Dictionary of Mythology: Heroes, Heroines, Gods, and Goddesses from around the World (DK, 1998), and featuring dictionary-type articles as opposed to retellings of legends or sagas, this nevertheless serves as a solid, reliable starting point for student research. Mythology remains a curriculum mainstay and a topic of perennial student interest. Collections that purchased the earlier version have probably noticed considerable wear and tear and will want to update. Other libraries that serve students in grades 4 through 10 should seriously consider the titles in this basic reference set. RBB
