Book of the Month - March: Treasure of the Loch Ness Monster

We're very excited about our book of the month for March - as soon as we saw the preview information from Floris, we knew it was going to be a big one! Expect huge sales for this from its publication in March right through the tourist season.

Our selection this month is... The Treasure of the Loch Ness Monster

Treasure of the Loch Ness Monster

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 is an addition to our range we highly recommend, wherever you are in Scotland. It's due to be published on March 22nd and we're taking pre-orders for it now. Find it on the site here
