Cover of Nessie and the Viking Gold drawn by Sara Silvestris Strand

In this adventure, Linda learns that Loch Ness is not the idyllic place it seemed on her first visit. The Vikings try to kill her when she steals their gold. But how else will she pay for the tickets to see her favorite rock star in a concert at Urquhart Castle, on the shore of Loch Ness? 

When the rock star’s crew arrives and starts tuning the sound system, the noise is enough to start earthquakes that are destroy parts of Nessie’s Grotto. 

Nessie brings Linda to see the damage. Linda doesn’t want to believe it. Nessie sounds like all the other adults in her life – worried about nothing. Linda has been looking forward to that concert. And once she does believe it, how can she convince the adults and most important of
all, her idol? The concert must be stopped!
