'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.' -- Lomond 'As a seasoned storyteller, Lari's writing is whimsical and has a wonderful quality to read aloud -- you feel like a true storyteller yourself when weaving her carefully spun words. And the illustrations are a beautiful depiction of what makes Scotland great -- mystery, beauty and magic!' -- BookBairn, book blogger 'Lari Don's narrative is evocative and totally engaging as she draws the reader in to this most mystical tale. The dreamlike illustrations from Natasa Ilincic match the story perfectly, dark and fascinating against majestic landscapes. Kenneth and Ishbel's story is wrapped up nicely at the end of the book but the appearance and actions of the Loch Ness Monster are as mysterious as her legend leaving the reader's imagination free to dream up their own stories about her.' -- Acorn Books, book blogger 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. ' --Goodreads 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.' -- Creative Steps
