Reviews

"[T]he generations of family members and the timeless Scottish spirits are portrayed with finesse...The setting makes a powerful background, and its heritage and folklore provide story elements that are interwoven with modern-day reality in an unusually seamless fashion. A welcome addition to the Boggart series."--Booklist Online
"Cooper deftly weaves ancient Scottish lore into an imaginative contemporary tale with an ecological twist, while the Boggart remains as comical, fey, unpredictable, and thoroughly entertaining as ever...The Boggart is back to delight a new generation."

--Kirkus Reviews
"Cooper's well-crafted prose and pacing will engage readers, who will thrill to the cast of 'Old Things' they meet."--School Library Journal
"Once again, Cooper cleverly combines European folklore with modern storytelling as she satirizes materialism and contemporary politics."--Publishers Weekly
