Loki: A Bad God's Guide to Taking the Blame

author/illustrator: Louie Stowell

series name:
Loki: A Bad Godís Guide

Norse god Loki records the highs and lows of living on Earth as an eleven-year-old in grumbles, snarks, and doodles in his enchanted diary. He might not have shown any moral improvement (yet), but Odin has given Loki another chance to prove himself worthy of Asgard. Earning everyoneís trust isnít easy, however. So far, Loki has managed to make only one human friend, Valerie. But he is irritated to learn that Valerie has made another friend. Then, at Thorís birthday party (a pointless mortal ritual, though luckily there is cake), the magical hammer Mjolnir is stolenóand everyone suspects Loki! Can Loki find Thorís hammer, discover who the real thief is, and clear his nameóor will his jealousy over Valerieís new friend cloud his judgment? From dangerous Frost Giants to disappointing parent-teacher conferences, Lokiís riotously funny illustrated adventures continue.

When Thorís hammer goes missing, trickster god Loki, still trapped as a cranky eleven-year-old boy, is determined to prove heís innocent (for once!). The hilarious series continues in this second volume, available in paperback.

author’s comments:
Louie Stowell started her career writing carefully researched books about space, ancient Egypt, politics, and science, but eventually lapsed into just making stuff up. The author of the Kit the Wizard series, she was inspired by her research into Norse myths to write Loki: A Bad Godís Guide to Being Good, her first project as both author and illustrator, which became a number-one UK bestseller. Louie Stowell writes full-time in London, where she lives with her wife, Karen; their dog, Buffy; and a creepy puppet that is probably cursed.
