Meet the Bogler, Alfred Bunce and his apprentice, Birdie who find these monsters and take them out! Birdie sings in a sweet voice to lure the monster into the open so the Bogler can kill him.

But does Birdie want that? And will they escape the other evil lurking around them? Read this engrossing creative, dark and thrilling story, How to Catch a Bogle by Catherine Jinks... if you dare!
