The Lovereading4Kids comment

Hilarious adventure, mythical creatures and non-stop action. Two brothers recite an ancient rhyme and conjure up an extra day of the week but they had no idea it would work - or that the day would belong to the banished Norse god, Loki, master of mischief, monsters and mayhem. As the day wears on, time seems to be lagging behind. Will this day of madness never end? Can two ordinary boys outwit an ancient lord and his monstrous minions, AND get their mum back?

Synopsis

The Day the World Went Loki by Robert J. Harris

'At that moment the kitchen door opened and something colossal came stomping out. It was about seven feet tall with green skin and tufts of black fur on the back of its ham-like hands. A long, thick tail was dragging heavily across the floor behind it. It was wearing Mum's green summer dress and white apron.'

Lewis and Greg have accidentally turned their mum into a troll, and the town of St Andrews into a fantasy world overrun by yetis, elves, dragons and valkyries - few of them friendly.

Reviews

'This was a book I enjoyed and would be happy to have in a school library.'

'The book is written with great wit and an abundance of one-liners ... this is a fun story that rattles along and works on every level... one for Sunday Times and QI afficionados.'

'A hugely enjoyable romp ... Lots of irresistible page turners and a hugely satisfying ending.'

'A boisterous, funny and magical tale of ancient myth hitting the streets of the modern world with a bang... Robert Harris is a master of the hilarious.'

'A magical romp through the streets of St Andrews.'

's Blood and Wizard's Hall 'This is a very funny addition to the myth, magic and the everyday genre with two endearingly distaster-prone heroes, plenty of action, larger than life (literally) characters and some very amusing jokes.'
