Emma is spending the summer with her Scottish cousins who are wonderful material for her attempt to win the School Prize for most interesting holiday diary The cousins lofty. This was so dull and boring to read There was way too much emphasis on the mechanics of things Victorian submarines photography scaling cliffs and family decisions These theoretically exciting things were described in their minutia with no character development in between The characters were hollow and annoying A childish sibling feud was one of the running subplots This story centres on how a wealthy family is going to support themselves once the South American market for their hair tonic falls through due to political upheaval The idea is to fake a monster in the Loch so then the first half of the book focuses on them getting the submarine rigged for the farce The second half of the book is eually without soul and is incongruent with the beginning of the book This is just so not worth your time

It was a long time ago that I read 'Emma Tupper's Diary' but I remember enjoying the book because of my love of cryptozoology or specifically the Loch Ness Monster; a similar subject to that which this book explores Oddly I didn't like most of the characters but I enjoyed the work from a wider perspectiveI even remember the day it was bought; the cover picture of a plesiosaur like creature swimming past the ancient submarine totally sold it to me and my mum grabbed it wanting to encourage me in my readingI would recommend this book to children and young adult readers in search of a good ol' fashioned adventure tale but with some uirks I can't believe it hasn't been made into a movie in the last forty years
