'A triumph... what begins as a simple Highland story ends up as a touching plea for the recognition of natural magic in the midst of mundane things.' -- Times Literary Supplement 'Suspense, magic and excitement in all the right proportions... a superb book.' -- Books for Keeps 'This story neatly reveals the conflicting claims of three worlds: Morag's traditional Highland way of life, the modern world of media, tourism and greed, [...] and the uncanny world of the supernatural. Vividly described.' -- Treasure Islands: A guide to Scottish fiction for young readers aged 10-14, Summer 2003
