'Don't you remember the old story? About two doors hidden in the rock? Behind one door there's a room full of poison, behind the other there's a room full of treasure!'
'That's just a story. It's not real. It's no more real than the big green monster our great-granpda thought he saw in the loch when he was wee.'
'Utterly stunning... 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... Natasa Ilincic's Nessie is dragon-like, almost Tolkien-esque. 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.'
Praise for The Secret of the Kelpie:
'The Secret of the Kelpie is a classic tale of the kelpie that is wonderfully and beautifully retold for children ages 4-7 in this gripping adaptation by renowned Scottish children's author and storyteller Lari Don, and enhanced with the breathtaking illustrations by artist Philip Longson. Very highly recommended for school and community library picture book collections.'
-- Midwest Book Review
'The story is haunting, and along with its lovely, detailed illustrations, it captures the look and feel of Scotland perfectly. '
Praise for the Scottish Traditional Tales:
'Beautiful books which are a great introduction to the folklore genre... Wonderful stories which will give children a real sense of Scottish culture.'
