A boggart, who has lived on a remote Scottish island for many centuries, is
accidentally transported to the city of Toronto. When this ancient invisible
mischief maker meets hi-tech for the first time, he creates chaos on a grand
scale. A big city is certainly no place for a boggart.
The Boggart and the Monster
A sequel to "The Boggart" in which the playful spirit comes to the aid of his
long-lost cousin, trapped in the form of the Loch Ness Monster. Emily, Jessup
and Tommy join with the Boggart to help Nessie regain his boggart form, and
dodge the hordes of scientists and tourists eager to capture him.
