Boggarts of Britain by Frank Mills


Boggarts of Britain by Frank Mills


This is a collection of stories about Boggarts, a lesser known magical people who love singing, dancing and fun. Such exuberance often leads Boggarts into the mischief that gets them their bad name among people. Mills sets out to redeem the reputation of the Boggarts in these four modern folk tales. In 'Boggart Hole Clough', a man who refuses to believe in Boggarts builds a house on enchanted land and soon gets more than he bargained for. As Boggart activity increases, he gets more and more worked up, Basil Fawlty-style, and the story reaches a wonderfully witty conclusion. In 'Boggart Farm

; 'Bogart Rescue

; and 'Boggarts Underground

'ghoulies and ghaisties', and the large type makes it accessible to younger children. (Kirkus UK)'
