Loki: A Bad God's Guide to Ruling the World
About this deal
Stowell balances humor with emotional depth, without ever falling into the expositional trope of people simply sitting and talking about their feelings. She's the author of the bestselling LOKI: A BAD GOD's GUIDE series, about the norse god Loki as a mortal child. My 11 year old absolutely loves this whole series of Loki stories, the only downside is she's read them all so quickly!
I have come to the conclusion that as a mere mortal, there are things about deities that I would never understand.

I remember this age when I wanted comics read to me at bedtime but my dad always insisted on reading something more grown up. The glorious illustrations go hand in hand with the witty story and make this series something special. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.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. 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.
Loki is a character that we just can’t get enough of and in this quirky interpretation, he’s a huge bundle of fun. In each book, Loki must face the challenges of any ordinary 11-year-old, and the results are knee-slappingly, tear-inducingly hilarious! 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.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, 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? Another hilarious Loki book […] Loved the explanations of mortal things such as zoos, mall etc that made me laugh out loud.
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. 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.However I got him this in paperback just last week and he is still gripped with the spikey haired norseman.
Perfect for helping kids (and adults) learn more about the nature of envy, empathy and it what it actually means to be. Another fabulously funny read from Louie Stowell, this time with a very clever exploration of good/evil and empathy! 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.
