A brand new, funny Boggart mystery from Susan Cooper, renowned author of the Dark is Rising sequence.

Once again, there's magic afoot in Scotland when Allie and Jay visit their grandfather and are eagerly greeted by the Boggart, an ancient sprite, and his cousin Nessie, formerly known as the Loch Ness Monster. Things are rarely peaceful with two boggarts around, but this time a real estate developer is the one causing a disturbance - a man named Trout.

Trout is building a luxury resort, and is desperate to buy up everything in town - including Allie and Jay's grandfather's shop. He's willing to do almost anything to raze the store to the ground, but with his beloved family under attack, the Boggart doesn't stay silent for long: soon bulldozers are mysteriously driving themselves into the loch, and surveying flags are floating off into the sky, but Trout is unmoved. When Nessie tries to scare him by transforming into the Loch Ness Monster, Trout is delighted - what a sensational tourist attraction he's found!

Allie, Jay, and the boggarts will have to use all of their wits to outsmart the developers and save their home - even if it means waking up all the Old Magic creatures. Even the deadly ones...

Redesigned using new archival scans of Tolkien's original drawings, MR BLISS is presented for the first time in a conventional trade format, sure to delight Tolkien fans of all ages.

When suburban Claudia Kincaid decides to run away, she knows she doesn't just want to run from somewhere, she wants to run to somewhere -- to a place that is comfortable, beautiful, and, preferably, elegant. She chooses the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Knowing that her younger brother Jamie has money and thus can help her with a serious cash-flow problem, she invites him along.

Once settled into the museum, Claudia and Jamie find themselves caught up in the mystery of an angel statue that the museum purchased at auction for a bargain price of $225. The statue is possibly an early work of the Renaissance master, Michelangelo, and therefore worth millions. Is it? Or isn't it? Claudia is determined to find out. Her quest leads her to Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, the remarkable old woman who sold the statue, and to some equally remarkable discoveries about herself.
