There is a separate world secluded deep beneath Scotland s infamous Loch Ness. It is called THE HIDDEN LOCH and it has existed for thousands of years as a serene community of extinct and mythological creatures totally unknown to the human world above. In order to find the answer of how to protect this ancient ancestral realm from encroaching humans (Drywalkers), Nessandra, a young plesiosaur, is forced to depart the safety of her secret underwater paradise to embark upon a journey of tantalizing discovery. She and her three brave companions, is destined to learn that the vast ocean depths lying before them are a far more dangerous and awe-inspiring place than they could have ever imagined. Their adventures transform their understanding of the world at large especially as it has evolved in ways which are a stark contrast to what they had always known to be true while growing up in The Hidden Loch. It is a time of great crisis even impending doom for The Hidden Loch. The outcome of Nessandra s critical mission may well determine the ultimate fate of that unique and beautiful world she calls home!
Another wonderful graphic novel from Penny-Farthing Productions. The Hidden Loch is about a hidden grotto under Loch Ness where creatures have gone to hide and live in a safe place away from the prying eyes of the humans, which they call drywalkers. There are paddle giants or what we call - the Loch Ness Monsters and there are other fish, some that have even been extinct to us. They story is about the creatures checking on the outside world and the trouble that can some with it. A young paddle giant is about to take over this task and is terrified. When she tries to take a look before she is supposed to chaos erupts and now she must take action in other ways.
I really loved reading this book. I loved seeing where the Loch Ness monster would be hiding and her family, it was magical. It was made all the better by incorporating Lake Champain's "Champ" as well. The story was interesting and I found it so fun to read. Ocean life always amazes me and I love books like this, taking the real and the magical and spinning it all together is a lot of fun for the reader.
