Reviews

*"The Boggart is a fascinating character, sly, ingenious, and endearing...What is most admirable is Susan Cooper's seamless fusion of the newest technology and one of the oldest forms of wild magic."--The Horn Book, starred review
*"[T]old with Cooper's usual imagination and grace; the Boogart is entrancing--a magically witty mix of fey spirit, comfort-loving cat, old man set in his ways, and child taking gleeful delight in his own mischief--of which there is plenty, all splendidly comical."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review
"The intelligently thought-out clash between the ancient folkloric creature and modern science guarantees a wide audience. A lively story, compelling from first page to last, and a good bet for a read-aloud."--School Library Journal, starred review
"Ms. Cooper's grasp of reality is as firm as her hold on the surreal...as long as writers with Susan Cooper's skill continue to publish, magic is always available."--The New York Times Book Review
"[T]his boisterous romp draws upon the same powerful pre-Christian magic at the heart of Cooper's well-known Dark Is Rising sequence. "--Publishers Weekly
