By (author) Coo Clayton
Maggie loves monsters, but she is bored of her toy monsters and would much prefer a real one to play with. Perhaps on her trip around Scotland she’ll find one! Using her trusty binoculars, Maggie discovers an abundance of Scottish wildlife. A highland coo, a grey seal and even a golden eagle, but they are not the monster she’s searching for. Eventually Maggie spots the perfect monsters to play with, but it’s not quite what she expected!
