And yet Kate Thompson succeeds in portraying him sensitively and sympathetically without excusing his behaviour. The characters are convincing and fascinating, and I finished the book feeling as though I had really spent the time inside somebody else's head, and learnt something new about how the world works. 3 people found this helpful.

My good mood left me the minute I seen her. You couldn't move in the kitchen for plastic bags. Every one of those cost her fifteen cents out of her dole. Every one of those cost her fifteen cents out of her dole she already had ten million of them stuffed in under the sink. It was the same in the flat in Dublin. Fluke used to say if my ma ever bought a proper shopping bag we could all go and live in Ballsbridge

Praise for Creature of the Night. Irish author Thompson is well established as a master of supernatural stories, but she shines here in the realistic plot as well.

Praise for Creature of the Night. This novel will draw in reluctant readers with the mysterious supernatural elements as well as the mayhem and defiance. Once hooked, they will be moved by the way that Bobby reassesses his expectations for himself due to the kindness and mentoring of a neighbor. Starred, School Library Journal. -Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books. True to an astonishingly amoral worldview while equally revealing of Bobby's.

She has woven a truly modern tale with a timeless theme. Totally absorbing and utterly beguiling, it is all done with a remarkable lightness of touch. Books such as this don't come around very often. Philip Ardagh's new series, Grubtown Tales, will be published by Faber next year.

A HOUSE WITH A SECRET

An unanswered question: Who is the Creature in the Night?

Bobby lives a reckless life smoking, drinking, and stealing cars in Dublin. So his mother moves thefamily to the country. But Bobby suspects their cottage might not be as quaint as it seems. Teens will be captivated by this spooky novel about the darkness that lurks in forgotten corners and tough teenagers.

Still cannot get over how true this writer is to the narrative troubled teen voice. Uncanny how
she gets into his head. This is a terrific tale. Has stayed with me for two years now, especially
the country scenes with the fairies causing mayhem. LOVE THIS BOOK. Not just for YA. I'm
far from being a YA.

It is hard to categorize this book. Bobby is a delinquent, thieving, foul-mouthed, rebellious Irish teen who is moved by his troubled mother to a house in the countryside. She is hoping that Bobby, removed from the bad influences of Dublin, will be able to start over. Or at least that she, Bobby and his younger brother can hide from the creditors. Oh, one small thing: the house may or may not be haunted. The previous tenant disappeared. Fascinating and richly drawn neighbors balance the mom's lousy parenting. All of the characters are many-sided and realistic. There are no pat answers to any of the questions, but the story will suck you in and keep you reading far into the night.

I must say when I initially bought this book I wasn't enticed by the premise. I just bought it hoping for a thriller to pass the time. It started off slowly enough and I wondered where the narrative was heading. I didn't pay attention as the characters were slowly introduced and fleshed out until you came to care for them. I held on as the plot took me along with enough incentive to turn just one more page. By the halfway point I realized I was completely hooked. The author took her time bringing you in like a frog in a slow boil. The plot takes you in an unexpected way as you follow the troubled teen on his discovery on who is the true creature of the night. Great read. Highly recommend.

This book swept me away.

The "hero" is a young boy that most of us would avoid knowing, and would judge out of hand as a burden on society, a juvenile criminal, callous and violent. And yet Kate Thompson succeeds in portraying him sensitively and sympathetically without excusing his behaviour.

The characters are convincing and fascinating, and I finished the book feeling as though I had really spent the time inside somebody else's head, and learnt something new about how the world works.

I agree that this was pretty well written and engaging. I would have preferred a bit more scare and a little less of the bad boy exploits. This book has been recommended for grades 8 and up. The characters in this tale are very rough and their language is equally rough. The author uses the F-BOMB quite a bit. Parents may want to consider this before letting their children read the book.
