Anyway… it would be helpful to read Reloaded right after The Loch Ness Mystery Solved if you haven’t read that book already, but I wouldn’t say that this is a requirement. One of the best things about our particular copy of the book is that a previous owner left annotations. Edinburgh-based Charco Press, founded by Samuel McDowell and Carolina Orloff, aims to change the current literary scene to make room for a kind of literature that has been overlooked’ and ‘expose the UK reader to new and exciting voices. There have been enough stories, claimed sightings and tall tales about the Loch Ness Monster to fill the famous loch itself.

Ilinčić's illustrations are emotionally evocative, walking the line perfectly between creating a monster that is awe-inspiring and terrifying -- especially in one heart-stopping spread, when the children first see the creature's huge shadow circling underneath their rowboat -- yet eventually gentle and maternal. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. We have new biographic information on the people integral to the LNM story, and new eyewitness accounts, illustrations and photos have been unearthed or have joined the collective pool. Kenneth and Ishbel's story is wrapped up nicely at the end of the book but the appearance and actions of the Loch Ness Monster are as mysterious as her legend leaving the reader's imagination free to dream up their own stories about her.The cover may have some limited signs of wear but the pages are clean, intact and the spine remains undamaged. Known affectionately as ‘Nessie’, this elusive creature has been chased with great zeal for over a century (it has been seen by over 1000 people) and this enthusiasm shows no sign of diminishing.

This stunning picture book from award-winning author Lari Don features Nataša Ilinčić's atmospheric illustrations of the Scottish Highlands. She is the illustrator of The Treasure of the Loch Ness Monster and The Legend of the First Unicorn. Binns terms this the ‘archive problem’, and it’s common to many subject areas that involve ‘paperwork’. A new edition, rewritten and with fresh new images, of a Pitkin classic that examines the evidence and the various sitings on this perennial mystery.Naish 2017) – are more frequently tremendously naïve, biased, impressionable and unscientific, and attracted to the subject because of its intrinsic appeal and their own tendency to want the world to be occupied by stuff considered beyond current scientific knowledge. As has been stated here at TetZoo many times now, I think today that cryptids like Nessie are sociocultural phenomena, that people ‘see’ monsters like Nessie because they fully expect to encounter a thing that’s firmly embedded within their culture (Binns terms this expectant attention), that ideas about the identity, biology, ecology and so on of Nessie are nothing more than speculative house-of-cards-type efforts, and that eyewitness descriptions of Nessie are either so ambiguous as to be useless, are hoaxes, or are explainable or near-explainable by those able to employ critical thinking or sceptical analysis. Beautiful books which are a great introduction to the folklore genre… Wonderful stories which will give children a real sense of Scottish culture. He bashes sceptics a lot – as if being sceptical about Nessie is a bad thing or represents poor life choice – and has written at length about the motivations that, he thinks, drive sceptics and their scepticism. Though he was almost certainly incorrect, he should be remembered as one of the earliest and most thorough of Loch Ness investigators, whom we have to thank for the preservation of much information relating to the creature and the people who saw her.
