Best-selling Francesca Simon tells a second hilarious story about what happens when the Norse gods turn up in a very 21st century London. Having been involved in saving the gods from extinction in The Sleeping Army, Freya helps again. This time the gods are seeking celebrity fame and success but Freya needs them for a more urgent task. All around the ice is melting. Can Freya distract the gods from the worlds of footballers and models and get the gods to stop it?

Synopsis

The Lost Gods by Francesca Simon

In The Sleeping Army, Freya went to Hel and back. She fought dragons, fled fire and outwitted giants - all to restore eternal youth to the Norse Gods. But now they're back, does anyone care? Up in Asgard, it doesn't really feel like it. The Gods' popularity on earth is waning, and without regular worship, their powers are fading fast. Meanwhile, their ancient enemies, the Frost Giants, are stirring. So the Gods hatch a plan - they'll come back down to earth, and they'll pursue a very different kind of popularity. They're going to become celebrities.

This is a new instalment in the second 8-11 year series from the mega-bestselling author of Horrid Henry.
