Longlisted for the Guardian Children's Fiction Book Award 2014 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? The Gods' popularity on earth is waning, and without regular worship, their powers are fading fast and 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. A rollicking, thrilling and hilarious ride, The Lost Gods takes up where the Sleeping Army left off and takes us back to Simon's brilliantly-imagined modern Norse England.

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

Reviews

Praise for The Sleeping Army:

'A terrific journey through the world of the Norse myths, a harsh northern landscape sparkling with magic ... plenty of humour ... I take my horned helmet off to her Guardian

Guaranteed to bring gales of laughter to 9+ The Times

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.

Sam Bateman and family

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lorraine Woods

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

Writing reviews help the children with their literacy skills and we always read the books together which gives us good quality family time!
