Product description

Review

"If you buy nothing else for your children (or yourself) this summer, buy Kate Thompson's The New Policeman . . . Witty, entrancinly romantic and rooted in an ancient Celtic myth, this is a parable about not having enough time which hits hard" (Christina Hardyment Independent)

"A story full of surprises, magic and a delicately balanced internal logic" (Julia Eccleshare Guardian)

"Kate Thompson's work always surprises with its inventiveness and sheer quality of her writing . . . At times dark, daring and subversive, at times sheer fun . . . This book breaks new ground and should become a classic" (Inis)

"A masterful fantasy of the old school: long on story, short on whizzy gimmicks . . . Beautifully told and the characters draw you in" (Carousel)

"A distinctive and beautifully written book . . . An enthralling tale, both whimsical and deep, told with a dry laconic wit" (Books for Keeps)

Book Description

THE NEW POLICEMAN: a wonderfully intriguing story going right to the heart of Irish magic, folklore and music, from the four-times honoured recipient of the Irish Children`s Book of the Year Bisto Award.
