THe Kelpie by T. J. Wooldridge - Cover Reveal, Scavenger Hunt, Giveaway


The Kelpie
by T. J. Wooldridge
Expected Publication Date:  December 2013
Publisher:  Spencer Hill Press
I can't honestly say I was joking when I suggested to my best friend, Joe – Prince Joseph, eldest son of England's Crown Prince – that we could probably find something the police had missed in regards to the missing children.  After all, eleven and twelve year olds like us did that all the timeon the telly and in the books we read…

            When Heather and Joe decide to be Sleuthy MacSleuths on the property abutting the castle Heather's family lives in, neither expect to discover the real reason children were going missing:

            A Kelpie.  A child-eating faerie horse had moved into the loch "next door."
            The two barely escape with their lives, but they aren't safe. Caught in a storm of faerie power, Heather, Joe, and Heather's whole family are pulled into a maze of talking cats, ghostly secrets, and powerful magick.

            With another child taken, time is running out to make things right.
