The Treasure of the Loch Ness Monster
Kenneth and Ishbel were so hungry, and Grandmother had no food. It was looking like it would be a hungry winter. But Ishbel suggests the two of them can cross the Loch Ness to Urquhart Castle to look for a long-fabled treasure. If they could only find that treasure, their family could have food all the time. All they needed to do was find the two magic doors below the castle and choose the right one. Their pockets would then be filled with enough gold to meet their needs forever. First they find a glittering key, and when they do, two doorways appear. But they know if the legend is true, behind one door is poison. Can they choose the right door, find the treasure, and get it home past the Loch Ness monster?
