Author Benjamin Harper takes readers on a tour of the stories surrounding the Loch Ness Monster. Fanciful claims are explored but also balanced with scientific fact-checking. For instance: do the alleged sightings of the Loch Ness Monster have elements in common with dinosaurs? Yes. Is there any evidence of dinosaur DNA in the lake? No. The book conveys the sense of fascination -- and mischief -- surrounding the lore of the monster. Facts about the numbers of sightings are placed next to anecdotes about complicated hoaxes that people have attempted to perpetrate with regard to Nessie. With a question-posing format, Harper's book is designed to spur discussion among young readers.
