    1. The first book in The Cryptid Files, The Loch Ness Monster was a story that I really enjoyed. The chapters were pretty short, which I loved and the book didn't take too long to read either. It was a great middle grade book.This book was part mystery, part adventure and who doesn't know Nessie? I think it will speak to many young readers. I'm in my 20's and even I loved it. But then again, I've always been intrigued by the myth of the Loch Ness Monster. And I really thought this book was very wel [...]

    2. The "facts" at the beginning of each chapter were pretty cool. It made me do some Googling. I like that Nessie could talk and give her own history but it didn't come off as cartoon-ish. The pace was quick, which I like. There was definitely a possibility of dragging with this story, but it was avoided. Nessie made it to the sea!Vanessa was such a brat to her dad. Does she want him to be alone forever? I do get how that would appeal to readers her age going through the same age, but I didn't care [...]

    3. The Loch Ness Monster is the first book in Jean Flitcroft's Cryptid Files. These books are geared towards younger readers and should be of interest to readers in Grade 5 and up. Each chapter begins with an interesting fact about the Loch Ness monster and its various sightings over the years. The rest of the narrative is the story of a young girl named Vanessa who is visiting Loch Ness with her father and twin brothers. Interestingly enough, Vanessa's mother investigated Cryptids, strange creatur [...]

    4. The first book of The Cryptid Files series starts off pretty interestingly. I always loved the idea of Nessie (mostly because of my Scottish heritage) so reading about young Vanessa Day continuing her mother's study in cryptozoology, and looking for the most famous Cryptid (these beasts of legend) of all (her words) was really cool. The chapters are nice and short, giving you the opportunity to play the "ok just one more chapter" game. Each chapter also gives some information about Nessie or som [...]

    5. This book was a fun middle reader about a girl named Vanessa whose mother searched for cryptids. In this first volume, Vanessa and her family travel to Loch Ness, where she searches for the legendary Nessie. With the facts and snippets of the former sightings, this is a great book with little bits of information that will spark the curiosity of kids to research more. The story was very good, however it got a little bit unbelievable that changed the story into something more fantasy than I would [...]

    6. Vanessa Day's mother has died, and the young girl seems to be the only one in her family having trouble resuming her life more than a year after the tragedy. Aside from Vanessa's interest in the Loch Ness monster, the beginning of the book is standard fare. But once she and her family get to Loch Ness for a vacation, mysterious events begin to push the story in a new and fascinating direction. After reading this book, I realized how thoroughly I'd enjoyed the innovative last third of the book. I [...]

    7. Kids will like the topic. There were a few places where there did not seem to be a smooth transition to the next part of the story. The last part did not seem to go with the first part and seemed contrived. Like the first part.

    8. I really liked the way the author started each chapter with a note about a Nessie sighting. Not too crazy about the dream sequence.
