The Treasure of the Loch Ness Monster - our March Book of the Month
We're very excited about our book of the month for March - as soon as we saw the preview information, we knew it was going to be a big one!
Our selection this month is... The Treasure of the Loch Ness Monster
This utterly stunning new paperback is from Lari Don, author of numerous best-selling children's books including the tremendously successful 'Secret of the Kelpie'.
Amidst what can be a crowded Nessie market, this is a tale that draws on traditional myth and local folklore to create a more traditional story that is sure to appeal to children from Scotland and further afield.
Here is the publisher's blurb:
Ishbel and Kenneth need to save their family from going hungry, so when they remember the old local tale about treasure under Castle Urquhart, they set off across Loch Ness in a rowing boat. But the loch may be hiding its own secrets. There's another ancient story about a giant monster living in the depths...
One of the outstanding features of 'Secret of the Kelpie' was its illustrations - the jacket perfectly captured the spirit of one of Scotland's newest landmarks and brought them to life. This latest book does the same for one of our oldest icons.
Natasa Ilincic's Nessie is dragon-like, almost Tolkien-esq. Her illustrations of the Scottish Highlands have just the right amount of realism and atmosphere to evoke this magical place but leave enough to children's imaginations to create their own world.
This beautiful new book would be a welcome addition to any bookshelf. It's due to be published on March 22nd so keep you're eyes on our Facebook and Twitter feed to find out when it's in stock - and remember you'll receive 10% off when you order from us!
