Thor is Locked in My Garage is the sequel to Talisman creator Bob Harris’s fun children’s novelÂ The Day the World Went LokiÂ It is just as entertaining, on every level, as power hungry Loki returns to St Andrews to claim the lost treasures that will enable him to bring Asgard back to life.
As the summer holidays are ruined by a blizzard which cuts off St Andrews from the rest of the world, brothers Greg and Lewis join forces with the voracious Susie, whose parents have an extremely convenient sports shop, to foilÂ Loki’s plans. Where Gods fail, teenagersÂ succeed and Bob Harris sendsÂ the trio, with their own empowering treasures, Â not to mention Susie’s self confidence, on a mission to thwart Loki and restore the naturalÂ order of things.
I don’t know what happened to Lindsay but Susie is the new girl in Greg’s life (not that he is doing anything to encourage her) and the characters play out their roles perfectly. I do love the way SusieÂ refuses to accept the Â truth when the boys tell her, preferring to opt for the more likely scenario that aliens have landed! Everything about this book is perfect for teenagers.
