A fun addition to the boggart story. ( )
  bookwren | May 2, 2019 |
Cute kids book with interesting Scottish mythological creatures including the Loch Ness monster, the caointeach (banshee), nuckelavee and the Blue Men of the Minch. When a developer comes to buy up all the land around an ancient castle, the boggarts call upon other Old Ones to fight against the change. Other than the setting, the story is pretty standard kid's fare. ( )

First words
Out of the cold grey water of Loch Linnhe, the seals hauled themselves up onto the rocks, one by one.
His grandmother's storytelling crept into his mind, and he knew again that in this modern world there were ancient things that he did not understand, but should respect.
