9780061174292: The New Policeman

Who knows where the time goes? There never seems to be enough time in Kinvara, or anywhere else in Ireland for that matter. When J.J.'s mother says that what she really wants for her birthday is more time in her day, J.J. decides to find her some. But how can he find time for her, when he barely has enough time to keep up with school and his music? And where will he get time to find out if the shocking rumor is true--that his great-grandfather was a murderer? It seems as though J.J.'s given himself an impossible task. But then a neighbor reveals a secret to him--there is a place where time stands still. J.J. realizes he's the only person who can make the journey, but to do so he'll have to vanish from his own life. And when J.J. disappears from the village, enter the new policeman. . . .

Product Description:

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

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)
