Description
Centuries old and thousands of miles from home.

When Emily and Jess Volnik's family inherits a remote, crumbling Scottish castle, they also inherit the Boggart—an invisible, mischievous spirit who's been playing tricks on residents of Castle Keep for generations. Then the Boggart is trapped in a rolltop desk and inadvertently shipped to the Volniks' home in Toronto, where nothing will ever be the same—for the Volniks or the Boggart.

In a world that doesn't believe in magic, the Boggart's pranks wreak havoc. And even the newfound joys of peanut butter and pizza and fudge sauce eventually wear thin for the Boggart. He wants to go home—but his only hope lies in a risky and daring blend of modern technology and ancient magic.

      • content: Listeners follow the antics of a mischievous, invisible spirit, a boggart, from his ancestral home in a Scottish castle to modern Toronto. Susan Cooper's story will delight a wide range of ages, especially when teamed with David Rintoul's marvelous narration. Beginning the tale in Scotland, Rintoul portrays the boggart at his ancestral haunts with an endearing brogue. All too soon the action moves to Toronto where the boggart must adjust to modern living and a new world of gadgets. Rintoul describes the hilarious results with just the right touch of restraint and believability yet obviously delights in the narrative. This is a family treat. R.F.W. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine

        March 1, 1993
        The Boggart, a Scottish spirit delighting in practical jokes, is ``one of the Old Things of the world'' and belongs ``to the cold separate heart of the Wild Magic.'' When the Volniks, a Canadian family, inherit the castle where the Boggart has lived for centuries, the shape-shifting mischief maker is accidentally transported to Toronto, where he discovers greater opportunities for trickery than he has ever imagined. Much gentle slapstick ensues when the ancient being visits Mrs. Volnik's antique shop and the theater run by Mr. Volnik. It falls to the Volnik children, Emily and Jessup, to befriend the prankster and send him home. Although far more lightheartedly, this boisterous romp draws upon the same powerful pre-Christian magic at the heart of Cooper's well-known Dark Is Rising sequence. Aside from all that is amusing and spooky, this tale offers a firmly grounded and utterly non-didactic introduction to some of the differences between the Old World and the New. Ages 9-12.
