About this deal

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.

I remember this age when I wanted comics read to me at bedtime but my dad always insisted on reading something more grown up. She's the author of the bestselling LOKI: A BAD GOD's GUIDE series, about the norse god Loki as a mortal child.

Another fabulously funny read from Louie Stowell, this time with a very clever exploration of good/evil and empathy! The Loki series is a real favourite of mine and one I am constantly recommended to children and families as they are accessible to even the most reluctant of readers.

Louie Stowel totally gets school children’s humour and I marvel at her whip smart one liners and hilarious situations.

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. I have come to the conclusion that as a mere mortal, there are things about deities that I would never understand.To make things worse, Fartface Thor is to be the hero of the school play, while Loki has to play the villain. However I got him this in paperback just last week and he is still gripped with the spikey haired norseman. 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.

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 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.

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. Another hilarious Loki book […] Loved the explanations of mortal things such as zoos, mall etc that made me laugh out loud.
