One perfectly sunny day, playing by the shores of your typical breathtaking Scottish loch, Flora and her brothers and sisters are met by a seemingly tame and elegant white horse. Flora errs on the side of caution as her fun-seeking siblings clamber onto the creature’s back, unknowingly sealing their fates. For this is no placidly mannered albeit beautiful horse; it’s a kelpie (audible gasp), a dangerous water horse with a penchant for stealing children. Get your hands on a copy to find out if the plucky young Flora is quick-witted enough to figure out the secret of the kelpie before all is lost. Spun together from timeless myths and folklore by the award-winning genius mind of Lari Don, and paired with stunning I-want-to-step-rightinto- them illustrations from Philip Longson, this is the latest edition of the Scottish Traditional Tales collection from Floris Books. A real treat for the eyes, no matter what age you are. - Matthew Land, Illustrator & Bookseller at Blackwell’s
