Loki: A Bad God's Guide to Taking the Blame: eBook (Fixed format)

By Louie Stowell

Second in the series as Norse god Loki grumbles, snarks and doodles his way through his enchanted diary, recording the highs and (mostly) lows of living on Earth as an eleven-year-old boy.

Loki might not have shown any moral improvement (yet) but Odin has given him another chance to prove himself worthy of Asgard by keeping Earth safe from the threat of Frost Giants. But eleven-year-old Loki has more important things to worry about: Parents Evening. After a series of 1-star reviews from his teachers, Loki is jealous of the glowing adoration bestowed upon Thor and swears vengeance. So when Thor has a birthday party and his favourite hammer, Mjolnir, goes missing, everyone suspects Loki. To clear his name, Loki must find Thor’s hammer and find out who the real thief is…

Customer reviews


'Underpinned by Nordic mythology and a satirical approach to contemporary culture, this entertaining romp already has a cult of worshippers.' Sunday Times

'ridiculously joyful from start to finish.' LoveReading4Kids

'Bursting with illustrations, doodles and comic strips, this is an equally funny sequel to the hilarious Loki: A Bad God’s Guide to Being Good.' BookTrust

'packed with jokes and funny illustrations, this second book about Loki’s adventures is just as funny as the first.' the Week Junior

'Featured in Books of the Year for The Week Junior' The Week Junior

'More mayhem, mischief, and Norse nonsense in the second laugh-out-loud diary saga about the god Loki' WRD Magazine

'You will have to read this very funny story […] All the favourite characters return from the first book along with some new ones adding to the chaotic fun.' Primary Times

'A strength of this novel is its joyous sense of fun and extreme readability. Most children will enjoy the varying text formats: comic strips, speech balloons, doodles, inner thoughts, scoreboards, text messages, advertisements and posters. Louie Stowell’s passion for graphic novels and comics is obvious. [...] this will be an incredibly popular book in the reading corner or library. It will advertise itself. Children will choose it. Children will recommend it to their peers. It is one of those books that will be literally read to bits.' Just Imagine

'Louie Stowell's newest offering is undoubtedly a triumph. Having loved the first book in the series, I was not at all surprised to find myself enthralled by the second. Loki: A Bad God’s Guide to Taking the Blame is utterly brilliant. It's zany, unpredictable and full of heart. The characters are likeable (even the lovable rogue, Loki), full of fun and have jaw-dropping attitude. The story itself is enjoyable and well paced. I particularly loved the Norse mythology references, which I believe set these books apart from their Wimpy Kid or Tom Gates counterparts, giving them much more depth. The presentation is spellbinding - each page has something different to look at, which makes the book fun to read and less threatening for some more reluctant readers.' ReadingZone

'Louie Stowell has once again created a hilariously funny diary-style adventure for Loki to rampage through. The humorous observations of a Norse god in a mortal world bring no end of amusement to the reader as we wonder at the strange way that we live our lives as seen by Loki. The inner thoughts of Loki give us insight to how the god of mischief justifies his actions and really believes he is doing things for the right reasons.' ReadingZone

'I love, love this book because I like knowing I’m not the only mischievous person in the world and it makes me want to put a spider under my mummy and daddy’s pillow. [...] I think the illustrations in the book are great and really look like they were drawn by an eleven year old boy. They are funny and silly and make me laugh. The book teaches me how to be cheeky without getting in to trouble. I would recommend this book to kids aged seven upwards who are looking for a little mischief and fun pranks.' Books Up North

'Loki: A Bad God's Guide to Taking the Blame is perfect for fans of comic book characters and the Tom Gates series by Liz Pichon. Every school library needs a copy of this book. I already know that this book is going to be very popular in my school library just like the first instalment.' Little Blog of Library Treasures

'I love this book so much! It’s hilarious and is packed with fun adventures and a good twist at the end.' The Book Nook

'Sorry Loki - as BAD as you think you are. This book is entirely EPIC! I love the style that it's written in, I love the illustrations and I just LOVE that there is going to be a book 3! Just like the first Loki book this can be enjoyed again and again. Its brilliant fun, lots of laughs and relatable moments. Loki is trying hard to be good and I'm loving every moment!' Toppsta

'I loved the first loki book, so I was really excited to receive the second one. I definitely wasn't disappointed, it was funny, easy to read and a book that I didn't want to put down. I would definitely recommend to any child to read both Loki books, they are amazing.' Toppsta

'I thought this book was amazing it had a lot happening and I personally think it was better than the first loki book as well! I would definitely recommend it.' Toppsta

'As funny as the first book. I recommend it for all Loki fans. I hope there will be more books like this one.' Toppsta

'This book is fun and engaging for children to read. The illustrations are great and the sequel lives up to the first one.' Toppsta

'We loved everything about this book. Not only is it funny throughout, but the comedic situations make everything more plausible and relatable. We particularly liked the diary formatting and the doodles you can see throughout. This is a great read for over 8 year olds and we're excited to see what happens next in the series.' Toppsta

'I read the first Loki book and loved it. This book is even better because it has so many things going on. I like how the author introduced new characters in this book. The cover and illustrations are creative, and Loki's sharp teeth are funny. I love how the characters are all different. This story has mysteries and adventures, which makes it exciting to read. I wanted to keep reading. [...] I can't wait for the next book in the series.' Toppsta

'I love this book because it's absolutely hilarious.' Toppsta

'THE GOOD PLACE meets THE DIARY OF A WIMPY KID in this hilarious doodle-filled book. The humor is as mischievous as one might expect of a book focusing upon this particular god. Laugh-out-loud, inclusive, and surprisingly heart-warming at alternate moments, this is a sure-fire win for the middle-grade audience for which it’s intended - and even the parents of such kids.'
