Ishbel and Kenneth need to save their family from going hungry. When they remember the old local tale about treasure under Castle Urquhart, they set off across Loch Ness in a rowboat. But the loch may be hiding its own secrets. There is another ancient story about a giant monster living in the depths.
Legends of the Loch Ness Monster abound, but this new tale from renowned Scottish children's author and storyteller Lari Don sidesteps the modern Nessie to create a new Loch Ness Monster myth inspired by local folklore.
This book is perfect companion to Lari Don’s bestselling picture book The Secret of the Kelpie. It tells the timeless tale of Scotland’s most famous creature, atmospherically brought to life by Nataša Ilincic’s stunning illustrations. The Treasure of the Loch Ness Monster is destined to become the classic Loch Ness Monster tale.
