The book cover that appears to suggest Nessie is a male

But his shadow casts an outline of Nessie — traditionally considered female.

The Inverness loch’s website refers to “her”. And Visit Scotland claims: “She’s long and thin.”

The cover of Under Loch and Key — not out until December — appeared online.

A baffled fan posted: “Isn’t the monster a girl?”

 Another complained: “Nessie’s a woman.” And a third insisted it is “established knowledge”.

The book follows the journey of Keyanna “Key” MacKay, who travels to Scotland and meets Lachlan Greer, who shows her that “not all monsters are her enemy.”

US author Lana Ferguson and Penguin have been asked to comment.
