Creature of the Night

Publisher: Random House

A teenage tearaway from tough downtown Dublin is unwillingly relocated into a rural County Clare which still believes in the Little Folk.

Taken to an isolated farmhouse by his mother, who is desperate to keep him out of trouble, together with his engaging but annoying young half-brother Dennis, Bobby is determined to steal the first available car to rejoin his urban gang mates.

But the longer he stays in the old house the deeper he gets into a mystery from the past and new friendships which offer him a better future. Thompson’s poetically insightful storytelling will undoubtedly engage adolescent readers.
