Ogopogo and the Mysterious Stranger
Written by Don Levers and illustrated by Angelina Danielle with Okanagan Publishing House.
Something Lurks on Okanagan Lake!
After Ogopogo rescues three busloads of children from certain peril on Okanagan Lake, the residents want to say “thank you” to their aquatic guardian. The charismatic young girl Sophie Twizzle looks to organize an event in celebration, and the community rallies in support. But will their shy hero respond to their invitation?
Unnoticed amidst the excitement, a mysterious stranger roams the lake. Is this just another summer tourist? Perhaps an enthusiast looking for proof of the Okanagan Lake Creature’s existence? Or does this stranger have more sinister intentions?
In a tale that weaves fiction and fantasy, join a modern take on medieval lore, complete with knights and dragons. Will the mysterious stranger capture a photo of Ogopogo and redeem his family's honour? Or can Sophie ensure no harm comes to her hero? Will the elusive Okanagan Lake Creature swim free?
What are you waiting for? Join the adventure today!
The book Ogopogo: The Mysterious Stranger is based on the author Don Levers’ own encounter with the Okanagan Lake Creature. It is an imaginative interpretation that is not meant to take away from the story of the N’ha-a-itk as the true origins of the Ogopogo. A portion of the proceeds from this book go towards Kwu x̌ast, run by the Okanagan Nation Alliance. Kwu x̌ast is a prevention program that creates a space for children to safely express and explore their creativity through a variety of art forms and settings.
