Praise For The Boggart and the Monster…
*"Cooper adroitly incorporates ancient lore into a contemporary setting while producing an imaginative and compelling tale."
“Ms. Cooper sets up a provocative elision of technological, natural, emotional and spiritual forces. Not that children will necessarily notice. The story is swiftly plotted and densely populated, zipping along with the speed of a video game…[It demonstrates] Ms. Cooper's masterly weaving of disparate realms.”
“Plenty of sparkling complications… The clever premise and great characters will leave kids clamoring for more."
“Susan Cooper's inventive writing, infused with both scientific and magical elements, will captivate even the most disbelieving of young adults.”
"A climactic tour de force…this entertaining romp can be appreciated as a gratifying fantasy and a thought-provoking story on the nature of freedom and the transforming power of love.”
