9+: Timecatcher - Marie-Louise Fitzpatrick

Release Date: 20/05/10


The old Dublin Button Factory hides a secret. There, Jessie meets a boy who walks through walls but can't remember his own name, and discovers the Timecatcher, a swirling, powerful Magic, which every seven years reveals the past, both good and bad, in a jumble of days. The Timecatcher is about to open now, and there are those who will go to any lengths to control it. Jessie and her friends - both ghosts and human - must stop them, before it's too late. A fast-paced ghostly adventure, sparkling with humour and heart.


A young adult story with ghost’s in the modern world as the author brings a hero of legend to the audience. Deep within this mystery is a tale of death, one of magic and another of redemption as the various cast members bring their strengths and weaknesses to the fore within. It’s quirky, it has some true magic of its own and it is backed to the hilt with possibilities to keep the young reader engrossed. I look forward to further offers in this series (hopefully) along with more by this author as she definitely knows how to entertain the reader as well as spin a yarn like a storyteller of old wrapped up with the charm of the Irish. Great stuff.
