"Every loch in Scotland, however beautiful, has its cold, dark depths. And every loch in Scotland has its kelpie. But it's easy to forget those dangers on a sunny afternoon..."Flora is playing with her brothers and sisters by the loch when she notices a stunning white horse.
While her siblings clamour for a chance to ride the beautiful animal, Flora is worried.
Where has this strange horse come from? Why are its hoof prints wet?Too late Flora realises this is no horse!
It's a kelpie: a shape-shifting water horse from Scottish folklore known to steal children.
Can Flora reveal the secret of the kelpie in time to save her family?The kelpie, once a lesser-known creature of Scottish mythology, is now enjoying legendary status as Andy Scott's magnificent Kelpies statues have become a world-famous tourist attraction. The classic tale of the kelpie is wonderfully retold for 4-7 year olds in this gripping adaptation by renowned Scottish children's author and storyteller Lari Don, with breathtaking illustrations by artist Philip Longson.
