Four Tales brings together four of Philip Pullmans classic fairy tales for younger readers: The Firework-Makers 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-Makers 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....
