Loch Ness Ghosts
by Jacques Duquennoy
Age Range: Under_5
“The Loch Ness Monster has appeared again”! Henry the ghost is quietly reading his newspaper while having a bath when he reads this headline. He decides to take all his friends on a trip to Scotland in his red convertible to try and find the Loch Ness Monster. The friends stay in a haunted Scottish castle owned by a ghost named McShortbread. They travel out by boat every day trying to photograph the monster but without success. Or so they think, until they get home and the photographs come back from the developers!
Another whimsical tale from French author/illustrator Jacques Duquennoy about Henry the ghost. This is the second title in this very successful picture book series following Ghost Party, also published by Frances Lincoln (2004), which took ten long years to be translated in English!
