    Satisfying Read from a Master

    Creature of the Night is a recent book from multi-award winning Irish writer, Kate Thompson; in fact, this book has been named a Bistro Honour Book. Fourteen-year-old Bobby has been moved from Dublin into the country by his mother who hopes the move keeps him out of trouble. The people from whom they rent the house tell them to leave milk out for the fairies. The book is, thus, a realistic tale about a troubled teenager and his somewhat dysfunctional mother with parallel plots about the previous renter who has disappeared and the nightly visit of a small, old fairy woman. Thus, like Alan Garner's The Owl Service, Kate Thompson's Creature of the Night is a basically realistic novel colored and deepend by an element of fantasy.

    Bobby shifts back and forth between discovering the worth of rural farm work and trying to get back to his delinquent mates in Dublin, and it is often difficult to like him--especially given the way he treats his mother.

    Thompson has written an excellent and satisfying novel that does not take the predictable or easy way out in the end.
