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

“Irish author Thompson is well established as a master of supernatural stories, but she shines here in the realistic plot as well.” Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“True to an astonishingly amoral worldview while equally revealing of Bobby’s compassion, this novel scintillates.” —Starred, Kirkus Reviews

“While . . . mysteries move the plot forward, Bobby is growing up. He comes to appreciate the rural life and country people, admiring their honesty and work ethic, even as the street life of gangs and crime loses its luster.” —Horn Book

“A unique blend of subtlety and brashness, this is an honest coming-of-age in the guise of a gripping YA thriller.” —Starred, Booklist
