About this deal

Definitely one you must have on your bookshelves, Loki: A Bad God’s Guide to Ruling the World is my favourite in the series so far and my wife had to ask me to be quiet when I was reading as I was laughing so hard. Loki might not have shown any moral improvement (yet) but Odin has given him another chance to prove himself worthy of A. She can be pretty picky in her taste in books so when she gets a book she devours like that we know it's a good one.

Loki is, as ever, just trying to be good, but when a cursed item reaches his possession, can he resist wanting to be king of the world? Told through magical diary entries that reveal only the truth, it's the Norse gods as you've never seen them: hilarious, immature--and prepubescent. Loki is a character that we just can’t get enough of and in this quirky interpretation, he’s a huge bundle of fun.I often worry he's going to 'age out' he already is disappointed that I have gone from knowing 'everything about star wars and hanging with Max Rebo' to not having seen the latest Mandalorian. Stowell balances humor with emotional depth, without ever falling into the expositional trope of people simply sitting and talking about their feelings. There is a fair amount of toilet humour, this time in the form of hamster poo and that is sure to win a lot of children's hearts.

This series is the one that convinced my son that reading could be fun […] These books are my 'go to' for recommendations for friends' children. To make things worse, Fartface Thor is to be the hero of the school play, while Loki has to play the villain. Another fabulously funny read from Louie Stowell, this time with a very clever exploration of good/evil and empathy!

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

Life's tough for trickster god Loki, banished to earth in the body of an eleven-year-old boy with thunder god Thor for company. Loki is the series protagonist - the most chaotic god of Norse mythology, who has been banished to live on earth as a normal child who also has to go to school. However I got him this in paperback just last week and he is still gripped with the spikey haired norseman.Another hilarious Loki book […] Loved the explanations of mortal things such as zoos, mall etc that made me laugh out loud. After the drama teacher casts him as the villain in the school play, Loki starts to wonder whether there’s any point in being good when everyone seems convinced of his villainy. Funny, charming, messages about empathy, jealousy and friendship, and, of course, a wonderful bunch of illustrations throughout (which add so much! When Heimdall and Hyrrokkin abandon their "children" to go on holiday, Odin sends Baldur - Thor's half brother and god of making Loki look bad - to babysit.

I remember this age when I wanted comics read to me at bedtime but my dad always insisted on reading something more grown up. When Heimdall and Hyrrokkin abandon their "children" to go on holiday, Odin sends Baldur – Thor's half brother and god of making Loki look bad – to babysit. A ring that looks suspiciously like the cursed ring of Andvari, one that promises Loki the world if only he gives in to his deepest, darkest desires.After the drama teacher casts him as the villain in the school play, Loki starts to wonder whether there's any point in being good when everyone seems convinced of his villainy. Louie Stowel totally gets school children’s humour and I marvel at her whip smart one liners and hilarious situations. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. I have come to the conclusion that as a mere mortal, there are things about deities that I would never understand.
