Odin-Thor, Bookbear Extraordinaire

Odin-Thor is widely regarded as the handsomest and most revered staffmember at Dragonfly Books. Adventurer, Viking, Teddy Bear, and Master Storyteller: there’s nothing Odin-Thor can’t do! 

You're most likely to catch him captaining his ship, The Tradewind; reading his favorite picture books; sneaking a nap in the back room; or flaunting his stylish and 100% historically-acurate viking helmet. He is very cuddly, but can also be very fierce.

Whatever you do, do not make fun of his hat.
