When NESSIE arrives from Scotland to visit her monster cousin NOBLETT there is bound to be trouble.

Noblett loves his peaceful secret garden and has little time for his troublesome cousin from Loch Ness.

Sam McBratney sums up his post-war childhood as short trousers, Fair Isle jumper, the 11 plus and grammar school. He taught at a secondary school himself for a while and was a primary school teacher.

He is the author of numerous books for children and young adults, published internationally, including The Green Kids. In 1993 he won a BISTO Award for Put a Saddle on the Pig, published by Methuen, and also received the Bass Ireland Arts Prize. He is married, with three grown up children, and an ancient tortoise!

One of the best and most perceptive writers for young people

The Guardian

This is a delightful story written in big print, and suitable for young readers. It is simply a joy to sit down and read. There is lightness of spirit and a sense of fun that is just what the young reader needs.

Books Ireland

... the story of Lowry Lynch and his long hair told in a wacky new style and quirkily illustrated by Donald Teskey, this also is ideal to get fledgling readers up and running.
