Description

Wry, witty and very funny diary-style story packed with doodles and comic strips about the frustration trickster god Lok. She's the author of the bestselling LOKI: A BAD GOD's GUIDE series, about the norse god Loki as a mortal child. However I got him this in paperback just last week and he is still gripped with the spikey haired norseman.

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. In each book, Loki must face the challenges of any ordinary 11-year-old, and the results are knee-slappingly, tear-inducingly hilarious! I remember this age when I wanted comics read to me at bedtime but my dad always insisted on reading something more grown up.

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.

Perfect for helping kids (and adults) learn more about the nature of envy, empathy and it what it actually means to be. 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. 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.

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

My 11 year old absolutely loves this whole series of Loki stories, the only downside is she's read them all so quickly! To make things worse, Fartface Thor is to be the hero of the school play, while Loki has to play the villain.

Stowell balances humor with emotional depth, without ever falling into the expositional trope of people simply sitting and talking about their feelings. 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. 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. 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.

Another hilarious Loki book […] Loved the explanations of mortal things such as zoos, mall etc that made me laugh out loud. This book, like the others before, is perfect for the middle grade audience it is intended for, but any adult reader won’t be the least bit bored if they happen to take a peek between the covers, too.

Another fabulously funny read from Louie Stowell, this time with a very clever exploration of good/evil and empathy! 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.
