'It's an ideal family read-aloud.'
The Horn Book Magazine

From the award-winning author of Babe, the Sheep-Pig comes the story of how the Loch Ness monster finds his home, thanks to the human family that raises him.

When eight-year-old Kirstie brings home a strange egg from the Scottish shore, her family never expects it to hatch. But the next day, Kirstie discovers a baby sea monster swimming in her bathtub! Part horse, part toad, part turtle, and part crocodile, he's the oddest-looking creature Kirstie's family has ever seen. Only Kirstie's grandfather knows what the beastie really is: a Water Horse! This lovable creature is the perfect pet. The only trouble is, he can't stop growing. He gets bigger. And Bigger. And BIGGER. Before long, he's outgrown every loch in sight. Will they ever find a home that's large enough for their Water Horse?

'This well-written, fast-paced fantasy combines a popular subject with appealing, distinctive characters, humour, and drama. King-Smith's imaginative spin on an old myth makes the outrageous possible.'
Booklist

'King-Smith's obvious belief in the power of care and compassion informs this genial tale told from both the human and sea monster's perspectives; it's not one of his strongest stories, but will capture the fancies of his many fans.'
Kirkus Reviews
