Excerpt from Thor’s Magic Hammer:
Loki raced back up to Heaven and fell on his knees before Freya, Thor’s wife, the beautiful long-braided Goddess of Love. “The King of the Giants has stolen Thor’s hammer and won’t give it back unless you marry him. You must dress yourself as a bride and hurry to the underworld, or all Heaven will be destroyed! “Marry him? Marry a wretched giant when I am already married to Thor? It’ll be a hot day in Heaven before I leave my divine husband for a wretched giant!” Freya’s braids flew every which way in her anger. All the other goddesses agreed that she had every right to refuse to marry a giant.
The gods agreed too, but the hammer had to be returned, they insisted, or Heaven might be destroyed. The gods and goddesses argued about what to do, but clever little Loki came up with a plan.
