Shortlisted for the Carnegie Award 2009 and shortlisted for the Bisto Irish Children's Book Award. From multi-award winning author Kate Thompson comes another absorbing read, blazing an enthralling path between the stark realities of modern-day society and the fantasy for which she has become so well known.  Told through the voice of 14-year-old Bobby, the novel transports the reader into the tearaway’s world, which has been characterised by joy riding, alcohol, and drugs.

 

Bobby has no intention of letting his move to the countryside halt his destructive lifestyle, however the longer he remains in the cottage the more preoccupied he becomes with the peculiar nocturnal occurrences which both intrigue and terrify him.  What was that staring through the dog-flap in the middle of the night?  Far from a simple tale of the supernatural, Creatures Of The Night is a highly original piece of writing which combines a compelling tale with a timeless theme.

 

What the Carnegie Award judges said:

'A profoundly moving and believable novel by a natural storyteller which really gets the teenage experience. The language is strong but not gratuitous, the story gripping and powerful, and Bobby a character you care about despite his wayward tendencies.'
