The Monsters of Rookhaven by Pádraig Kenny

Sometimes the monsters take us.  Sometimes we become the monsters.

Mirabelle has always known she is a monster.  When the glamour protecting her unusual family from the human world is torn and an orphaned brother and sister stumble upon Rookhaven, Mirabelle soon discovers that friendship can be found in the outside world.

But as something far more sinister comes to threaten them all, it quickly becomes clear that the true monsters aren’t necessarily the ones you can see.

A thought-provoking, chilling and beautifully written novel, Pádraig Kenny’s The Monsters of Rookhhaven, stunningly illustrated by Edward Bettison, explores difference and empathy through the eyes of characters you won’t want to let go.

Peer & Press Reviews

Kenny embraces a new Gothic sensibility in this memorable, nuanced novel that pairs real chills with empathy and emotion.

The Bookseller

A stunning book… a brand new take on the monster story.

Eoin Colfer

Unique, thrilling and moving… with its timely – yet timeless – message of choosing empathy over fear, The Monsters of Rookhaven is proof that Pádraig Kenny is one of the best children’s writers around.

Shane Hegarty, author of Darkmouth
