"A classic tale of the kelpie that is wonderfully and beautifully retold for children ages 4-7 in this gripping adaptation... and enhanced with the breathtaking illustrations by artist Philip Longson." -Midwest Book Review "The author uses elements of various traditional versions and acknowledges several collections of Scottish tales as source material. But Don makes her story far gentler than many." -Kirkus Reviews "The illustrations are very pretty and fun, and are an exciting part of the story." -Kids' Book Buzz "A traditional Scots tale served up both fresh and freshly illustrated.' -Kirkus Reviews on The Tale of Tam Linn 'With swirling lines, soft earthy colors, and dramatic compositions, Longson's illustrations capture the beauty of the natural world as well as the ominous undertones of the tale. A haunting picture book with a stouthearted heroine." -Booklist on The Tale of Tam Linn
