When Emily and Jess Volnik's family inherits a remote, crumbling Scottish castle, they also inherit the Boggart - an invisible, mischievous spirit who's been playing tricks on residents of Castle Keep for generations. Then the Boggart is trapped in a rolltop desk and inadvertently shipped to the Volniks' home in Toronto, where nothing will ever be the same - for the Volniks or the Boggart.
In a world that doesn't believe in magic, the Boggart's pranks wreak havoc. And even the newfound joys of peanut butter and pizza and fudge sauce eventually wear thin for the Boggart. He wants to go home - but his only hope lies in a risky and daring blend of modern technology and ancient magic.

Under appreciated masterpiece
Belonging to that special category of magical stories so often associated with Gaiman and Rowling the boggart is one of my all time favorites. The audio production is the same as I remember it from the library copy I so often checked out as a boy with the narrators delightful Scottish accent and diction. Short and sweet this is a story not to be missed.

Listened to the whole tale in one go. Have read the book quite a few times, but the audio version greatly enhanced the 'realness' of the story. And the narration was excellent - reminded me of Scots voices I heard when we visited there in 2001. Thoroughly enjoyed this book; thanks, Audible!
