If you haven’t grabbed a copy of ‘Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer’, the first book in a brand new series from the author of the Percy Jackson, then may we point you towards a few tweets which will have you wondering why on earth not.
With Annabeth Chase’s cousin as the lead in his own adventure about Norse mythology (we’re talking Loki, Thor and Vikings), this book has already been crowned GoodReads Best Middle Grade & Children’s Book Winner 2015 and is attracting hundreds of applauding tweets.
