Review quote

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. -- Sarah * 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. -- Linda * 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. -- Donna * 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. -- Emma * Little Blog of Library Treasures *

About Louie Stowell

Louie Stowell started her career writing carefully-researched books about space, ancient Egypt, politics and science but eventually lapsed into just making stuff up. She has written fiction for 8-12 (Nosy Crow and Walker Books US), but Loki A Bad God's Guide to Being Good series is her first project as both author and illustrator, inspired by her research into Norse myths.


Louie writes full time in London, where she lives with her wife Karen, her dog Buffy and a creepy puppet that is probably cursed.
