Reviews

  • 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
