With humor and warmth Dick King-Smith has created a tale which children will want to read again and again. Told from the point of view of the children and from Crusoe the Water Horse's point of view, this book is a must for animal lovers. " Review Written by Marya Jansen-Gruber.

The Water Horse is a well researched story, particularly with regards to details of the hospital wards and conditions in the Crimea; there are some interesting references to Florence Nightingale, as well as to the drover's way of life. Catherine makes for a spirited heroine, her courage and resilience admirable/5(40). A boy cares for a water horse, later known as the Loch Ness monster. Angus is a boy living in a manor in the Scottish lakeside of Loch Ness with his housekeeper mom who discovers an egg in the water. He then takes it home. When it hatches, he sees a creature .

For the best return on the mystery surrounding Scotland's version of Bigfoot, The Water Horse: Legend of the Deep should have gotten the M.

But since this film is an adaptation of Dick King-Smith's children's novel /5(15).   But with the Water Horse growing ten times its size every day, Angus finds it increasingly difficult to keep his new friend a secret.
