At the age of ten, I came across Greek and then Norse Mythology.
Well, it wasn't so much a coming across as a collision. I was never the same again.
After that, I read every book I could find that had the words 'folk-lore,' 'myth' or 'legend' in the title. I read around the world in myth and folktale, though the
Norse Myths probably remain my favourite.
Right is Arthur Rackham's illustration of 'Odin and the wolf, Fenrir.'
