Your Field Guide to Spotting Skadi

(Middle school level)

Skadi really stands out in a crowd. She'll probably be the tallest person there (she is a giantess, after all). Plus, sometimes she wears a full suit of armor and carries a bow and arrow. (Careful! She won't hesitate to shoot if necessary!) When she's not in war gear, she'll probably be on skis. You'll find her zipping down and around the mountains around her beloved home, Thrymheim. She's probably on the hunt—it's one of her favorite pastimes.
