A Monster Calls

Inspired by an idea from Siobhan Dowd

The #1 New York Times bestseller!

An unflinching, darkly funny, and deeply moving story of a boy, his seriously ill mother, and an unexpected monstrous visitor.


At seven minutes past midnight, thirteen-year-old Conor wakes to find a monster outside his bedroom window. But it isn't the monster Conor's been expecting - he's been expecting the one from his nightmare, the nightmare he's had nearly every night since his mother started her treatments. The monster in his backyard is different. It's ancient. And wild. And it wants something from Conor. Something terrible and dangerous. It wants the truth. From the final idea of award-winning author Siobhan Dowd - whose premature death from cancer prevented her from writing it herself - Patrick Ness has spun a haunting and darkly funny novel of mischief, loss, and monsters both real and imagined.

The Monster Calls is about Conor who every night struggles with the same terrifying nightmare. One night though he awakes to a monster standing in front of his window. The monster shows up exactly seven minutes after midnight and wants to tell Conor three stories. Conor doesn’t seem to be afraid of the nocturnal visitor because he has a far bigger fear than a monster. I loved this book. It was beautiful to read in english, although it was an extremely sombre and sad story. The illustrations by Jim Kay made it so vivid and I could perfectly sympathize with Conor. I’m really looking forward to watching the movie adaptation of this book.
