When eight-year-old Kirstie brings home a strange egg from the Scottish shore, her family never expects it to hatch. But the next day, Kirstie discovers a baby sea monster swimming in her bathtub! Part horse, part toad, part turtle, and part crocodile, he's the oddest-looking creature Kirstie's family has ever seen. Only Kirstie's grandfather knows what the beastie really is: a Water Horse!
This lovable creature is the perfect pet. The only trouble is, he can't stop growing. He gets bigger. And Bigger. And BIGGER. Before long, he's outgrown every loch in sight. Will they ever find a home that's large enough for their Water Horse?
A magical retelling of the legend of the Loch Ness Monster, The Water Horse is a timeless tale that will delight children of all ages.
A major feature film, starring Emily Watson, Ben Chaplin, and David Morrissey, has now been inspired by this book.

"The characters are believable and, since King-Smith relates events from the point of view of the water horse as well as those of Kirstie and her family, readers get to know the friendly, not-at-all-fearsome monster." (School Library Journal)
I can't comment on how this compares to the movie, but i can say that this audio book is certainly worth listening to even if you haven't seen the movie.
This book is good one and it really would be liked by everyone , and i would recommend to everyone.
I did not really find this ebook easy to follow along with in listening to it. I tried. But there were some places where it was very hard to hear and or understand this speaker and found it hard to stay connected to continue following it through and got bored with it. I really do not know who ain't would recommend this ebook to,sorry author and narrator! But I fave you three stars for trying to do your best in sharing this probably very sweet short story. Good work Dick! By Angela
