‘Don’t you remember the old story? About two doors hidden in the rock? Behind one door there’s a room full of poison, behind the other there’s a room full of treasure!’

‘That’s just a story. It’s not real. It’s no more real than the big green monster our great-grandpa thought he saw in the loch when he was wee.’

Ishbel and Kenneth’s family are poor and hungry, so when the children remember an old local tale about treasure under Urquhart Castle, they set off in a rowing boat across Loch Ness.

But, the loch may be hiding its own secrets. There’s another ancient story about a giant green monster living in the depths…

This timeless tale of Scotland’s most famous monster, atmospherically brought to life by Nataša Ilinčić’s stunning illustrations, is destined to become a classic.
