Written by Sara and Molly Sheridan

Based on one of the stories Sara made up for Molly when she was a little girl, it also includes darkly quirky and fun illustrations by first-time picture book illustrator Iain Carroll.

When Nessie finds an ancient map showing a network of Monster tunnels, she decides to leave her high-profile life in Loch Ness and sets off on an adventure. She doesn’t know if there are other monsters out there or what the trip might hold, but she needn’t worry – from Tay Tay in Ireland to Pez in Spain – she discovers lots of new friends. The only trouble is that the tunnels are getting blocked with waste , so Nessie has to come up with a plan . . .
