Description

This book was also really exciting as you got to play detective and solve the mystery of Thor’s missing hammer. After playing one trick too many, Loki, Norse god of mischief, is sent by Odin to live on earth as an 11-year-old boy. 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. packed with jokes and funny illustrations, this second book about Loki’s adventures is just as funny as the first. Having read the story myself, I had a good feeling that my Year 4 class (avid lovers of the classic 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid') would greatly enjoy this particular book.

Stowell balances humor with emotional depth, without ever falling into the expositional trope of people simply sitting and talking about their feelings. Norse mythology is deftly woven in, with enough explanations (and diagrams) that it would be understandable to someone completely new to it, but with plenty of references that will make those who do understand them chuckle. 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. Wickedly hilarious and subversively fun, Loki: A Bad God's Guide to Being Good is a laugh-out-loud delight with all the fabulously addictive weirdness of the original Norse mythology. This selection of books shows what Viking life was like, with all the action and humour you might expect.Overall, I would highly recommend as a class text for Key Stage 2; my class cannot wait to find out how Loki is going to improve his virtue score! As he records his lies THE TRUTH in his magical (judgemental) diary, it becomes clear Loki hasn’t a clue how to tell good from evil, trust from tricks, or friends from enemies.

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.By submitting a review you grant us the right to display and use it in any way; please read our General Legal Notices for full details. Private School: a place where the children of the rich learn how to talk over each other and are told on a daily basis that they are born to rule the world. Another hilarious Loki book […] Loved the explanations of mortal things such as zoos, mall etc that made me laugh out loud.
