'One of the best books of the year' said the "Guardian" when "Switchers" was published and it received outstanding critical acclaim, followed by great sales. Kate Thompson went on to write two more unputdownable sequels "Midnight's Choice" and "Wild Blood", featuring Tess and Kevin, and here are all three novels together in one volume for nine-year-olds and above. Tess and Kevin are Switchers - they can change into any creature at will. And when they discover they share this gift, they find that together they have powers beyond belief, enabling the two of them to save the world from icy destruction. But there are other more sinister characters among the Switchers and when Tess is dragged into the dark night-time world of Martin, she finds herself facing the most terrifying choice of her life. What is more she is approaching her fifteenth birthday, at which point she must make up her mind about who or what she will become in her final permanent Switch - from which there is no going back.

Kate Thompson is one of the most exciting authors writing for young people today. A born storyteller, her work is highly original and she is thought provoking in her ideas. She has travelled widely in the USA and India and studied law in London.

She is now an accomplished player and also has a great interest in restoring instruments. Kate is the only author to win the Children's Books Ireland Bisto Book of the Year award four times - in 2002 for The Beguilers, in 2003 for The Alchemist's Apprentice, in 2004 for Annan Water and in 2006 for The New Policeman. The New Policeman also won the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize 2005, the Whitbread Book Award Children's category 2005, the Children's Book of the Year in the Irish Book Awards in March 2006 and has been longlisted for the Carnegie Medal.
