Skatrosenknup the Darling Rosebud—“Skat” to his friends—is a young light-elf of cheery good will. It’s just too bad that he doesn’t have good sense, as well. If there is mischief to be had, he’ll find it. Failing that, he’ll create it!
From his first day out from under his mother’s watchful eye, he finds each girl he meets to be irresistible—and he falls head over little heels in love with every one of them.
… problem is, the girls aren’t so forgiving of his fickle heart.
Then he sets his sights on bigger and bolder goals. Annoyed by what he feels is the unfair banishment of all light-elves from Asgard, young Skat vows to convince Odin to let his people back into paradise.
…but the Norse gods are not exactly amused by his antics either.

His charisma and courage are his best defenses against the many scrapes he finds himself in. And in the end, only a few completely selfish creatures can resist his many charms.
… or can they?"
