A Boggart tries to find his way home in this twenty-fifth anniversary edition of Newbery winner Susan Cooper’s classic tale of magic and mischief.

When Emily and Jess Volnik’s family inherits a remote, crumbling Scottish castle, they also inherit the Boggart that lives there—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.
