A Boggart is a creature of the Wild Magic, a kind of house-elf, but which delights in mild mischief without a sense of responsibility. The one inhabiting a lonely Scottish island gets taken back to Canada by the family of the castle's new owners and the children must manage to send him back to Scotland


Enjoyable, and particularly attractive because of the childlike figure of the Boggart: magical and therefore powerful, but who only plays mischievous tricks.
