Product Description

Amazon Review

Set in the Highlands of Scotland, The Boggart and the Monster has all the trademarks of a first-class adventure: magic, high-tech expeditions and mythical monsters. The boggart of MacDevon Castle, a mischievous shape-shifting spirit, spends his days happily playing tricks on the new owner of the castle. After discovering his old cousin Nessie miles down in the murky waters of Loch Ness, the boggart must enlist the help of a few human friends to return, with Nessie in tow, to his beloved castle. With a team of scientists hot on their trail, the MacDevon boggart and Nessie begin their adventure. Susan Cooper's inventive writing, infused with both scientific and magical elements, will captivate even the most disbelieving of young adults. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Format: Hardcover
Susan Cooper's latest novel is a welcome addition to an already impressive collection of hugely enjoyable stories. This tale of Emily, Jessup, Tommy, and the mischievous Boggart, already introduced to readers in The Boggart, is sure to engross any reader who has ever wondered about the existence of spirits and elements which we simply cannot understand. Her spin on the story of the Loch Ness Monster is fresh and imaginative; this is not just some prehistoric creature trapped in a modern age, but a tierd and disheartened Ancient who needs a little bit of human magic--the sort of magic we all carry inside us--to return him to his rightful place as the Boggart of Urquhart. Cooper cleverly intertwines Gaelic mythology with high-tech wizardry to create a satisfying mixture which is fun from start to finish. She has always produced books which are a pleasure to read either as a child or as an adult, and The Boogart and the Monster is no exception.
