her motherís death, thirteen-year-old Kelly MacBride is sent to live with a
mysterious grandmother whose Highland estate whispers with intrigue. Aided by
Gordie, an obsessive bagpiper with a penchant for Shakespeare and mischief,
Kelly deciphers riddles penned in ancient runes. These lead her to hidden
tunnels and secret chambers where she chances upon a how-to guide on shape
shifting. But plots lurk just out of view-an attack on the manorís working dogs,
a midnight ambush, and a poisoning threaten the manorís safety.
shifting might help Kelly identify the source of the danger, but as a mouse she
canít run without tripping on her tail; in squirrel form she finds herself fifty
feet in the air without a branch to cling to; and she learns just how blind bats
are when she forgets to engage her echolocation. Can she get it right in time?
Set in the Highlands of Scotland, Through the Eyes of a Raptor weaves
Celtic myth and Scottish culture around questions of loyalty and betrayal,
delivering a captivating tale of magic and suspense.
