We do like a Norse god here at DiscoverKelpies Towers, which is why we LOVE Robert J. Harris’ hilarious adventures The Day The World Went Loki and Thor is Locked in my Garage! Set in St Andrews, the Master of Mischief, the Prince of Pranks Loki tries to take over the world not once, but twice! Luckily for us, troublesome twosome Greg and Lewis are there to save the day, with a little help from Thor himself.

Exciting stuff, eh? So imagine our delight when we found Loki’s Top Secret Very Important Personal Diary just lying on our desks. It would have been rude NOT to read it… Right?

Lokiday 32nd October 2014

Dear Diary,

Worst. Day. Ever.

I had such grand plans for today. Such grand plans. I even had my special green suit – My Taking Over The Universe Suit – dry-cleaned for the occasion. Today was the day Larry O’Keefe took his rightful place on the throne of Asgard.

Or it would have been. If only it hadn’t been for those pesky kids.

Greg and Lewis McBride. Pah! Those chumps would never have been able to defeat me this time. They’re just loki (ho, ho, ho, I do still like a wee joke) that Susie ‘Toots’ Spinetti and that meathead Thor were around. It’s like they’ve nothing better to do with their time than get under my feet.

It was a great plan, Diary. I’d spent months tracking down the Fimbulwinter box, convincing hotshot Hollywood halfwit Garth Makepeace to take me with him to St Andrews, even learning how to play golf! Alright, I didn’t spend as long on that one as I should have, but what’s an outcast Norse god to do when there’s not enough hours in the day?

And for what? For nothing, that’s what. My ice monsters, my precious toys, smashed to pieces. And I’m pretty sure there’s no Yggdrasil seed in the Herbs and Condiments aisle in the local supermarket.

They’ll see. They’ll ALL see. There’s two things you should never do. Never steal a banana from a gorilla and never try to trick the god of mischief.

Oh yes, I’ve got another big plan. I’m going to take over the world, but this time it’s DIGITAL! And the first place I’m going to take over is DiscoverKelpies…
