Four Tales brings together four of Philip Pullman's classic fairy tales for younger readers: The Firework-Maker's Daughter, I Was a Rat!, The Scarecrow and his Servant and Clockwork. This beautiful gift edition contains a prologue and epilogue from the author, as well as stunning illustrations from Peter Bailey. The Firework-Maker's Daughter: Lila is determined to become a firework maker like her father. But can she convince Razvani, the Fire Fiend who lurks in Mount Merapi, that girls have what it takes, too? I Was a Rat!: When a small boy turns up on the doorstep of old Bob the cobbler and Joan the washerwoman, all he can tell them is 'I was a rat!'. But who is he really, and where has he come from? A wonderful, surprising and sharply-observed re-telling of Cinderella. The Scarecrow and his Servant: After a bolt of lightning hits him, a scarecrow is brought magically to life... but without many brains. Young Jack becomes his faithful ally, and an exciting and adventure-packed journey begins. Clockwork: A tormented apprentice, a deadly mechanical knight, a girl with a perhaps too-tender heart, and an inventor who some say is the devil... all wrapped up in a Gothic story-within-a-story, as elegantly crafted as the most intricate clockwork.
