Heartfelt, witty, and wonderfully original. Archie Wilson's world is in ruins.

In particular, the author beautifully renders Archie's evolving relationships with his father. Overall, this story will connect with kids. Cooper masterfully plays with well-worn myths and folklore to create a new Scottish tale imbued with its own playful magic. “Cooper gives a new twist to an old, enduring myth. An exhilarating, mind-expanding voyage under clam waters that opens the mysterious secrets of Loch Ness”
