Loki like You’ve Never Seen Him: Read an Extract from Loki: A Bad God’s Guide to Being Good by Louie Stowell

My name is Loki, and I am a god.  Or I was until last Tuesday.

Now, Odin has banished me to Earth in the form of an eleven-year-old boy. This situation is bad for many different reasons.

First, there is the overall weakness of this mortal body. I’m not the strongest of the gods, but right now, my legs look like sticks, and I have the upper-body SIF’s head looking strength of a small squirrel!

Gods spring into being fully formed, so I have not, until now, ever been a child. Apparently, this is what Odin thinks I would look like as one! Rude!

Second, there are my fake parents. The guard god Heimdall (who hates me) and a terrifying giant called Hyrrokkin (feelings unknown) are here to pretend to be my father and mother while we are on Earth. I have to live with them and do what they say. I am appalled at this indignity. I’m thousands of years old! I should not have a bedtime! I should not have to do chores! I should absolutely under no circumstances be expected to fold my own undergarments!

Third, I must put up with eleven year-old Thor, who seems to take great amusement from sitting on my head and farting. Perhaps I should take comfort in the fact that he is here and must suff er with me … but it’s hard to be comforted at the same time you’re being farted on…

Synopsis

Ages 9+

Wry, witty and very funny diary-style story packed with doodles and comic strips about the frustration trickster god Loki feels at having to live trapped in the body of a weedy eleven-year-old boy.

After one trick too many, Loki is banished to live on Earth as a “normal” school boy. Forbidden from using his AWESOME godly powers, Loki must show moral improvement. As he records his lies THE TRUTH in his magical (judgemental) diary, it becomes clear Loki hasn’t a clue how to tell good from evil, trust from tricks, or friends from enemies.
