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

Publisher: Walker

Loki, god of mischief, is back! And he’s still stuck in the body of a schoolboy, having to go to school and do rubbish chores like picking up dog poo. But he has a friend now – Valerie. Life is OK. Even if Valerie is now obsessed with someone called Georgina and the new girl, Sam, mysteriously rejects his attempts at friendship.

When a classmate plays a prank on the teacher, Loki doesn’t mind taking the blame because it is funny. But when someone steals Thor’s hammer, Loki is outraged that everyone thinks he did it. Just because he’s stolen things and caused trouble in the past! It’s so unfair. He has to prove them wrong. But can he find the hammer, uncover the real thief and make everyone perform a song and dance about how great he is?

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. Loki’s view of mortal life is always amusing, as is his hugely inflated self-confidence. Eventually, though, he grudgingly learns some lessons about telling the truth, friendship and being less self-centred. At least temporarily.
