Loki is a trickster god who has been banished to live among mortals on Earth by Odin. Not only that, but he is trapped in the body of an 11 year old boy, sent to school and living under the watchful eye of two guardians and, worst of all, putting up with Thor who has joined them. There’s only one way Loki can make it back to Asgard, to live back among the gods…by doing good deeds which are judged by the diary he writes in each day. Will he ever make it back? Or is he too bad at being good?
This is hands down one of the funniest books I’ve read! When reading it in class, I had children constantly asking me what was so funny, and I know there will be a queue to read this once I’ve put it into the book corner.
With laugh-out-loud humour, Louie has written a brilliant book which combines Norse mythology with modern day mischief. The diary format makes it an easy read, with witty illustrations which enhance the story further. The Loki Virtue Score (LVS) at the beginning of each chapter is genius, along with the interaction from the diary.
The interaction of the characters makes for an interesting plot. Seeing Loki discover good deeds and try – and fail! – to complete them is very entertaining. I honestly can’t write enough good things about this book – it’s a perfect read for any KS2 class and beyond!
