Publisher's Summary

What Lila wants to be more than anything else in the world is...a Firework-Maker! But firework-making is not just about being able to make Crackle-Dragons and Golden Sneezes. There is also one special secret: every Firework-Maker must make a perilous journey to face the terrifying Fire-Fiend! Not knowing that she needs special protection to survive the Fire-Fiend's flames, Lila sets off alone. Her friends Chulak and Hamlet, the King's white elephants, race after her. But can they reach her in time?

©1995 Philip Pullman; (P)2014 Audible, Inc.

    "Super"

    Super children's story full of vibrant colour and character. Delightful. A great performance of it too by the narrator.

    "Hmmm..."

    I love Pullman, but this is not his best work. The narrator is clearly a good actor, but trying to do the voice of a young girl when you're a grown man is actually a little creepy and the effect was jarring.

    "the seeing stone"

    The Seeing Stone was the first King Arther book I read. I think this is a good book however, for a bookthat is about magic, this book need more magic in it. If someone wants to read a magic book, I recormand them to try the Septimous Heap books. It's full of exiting events, lots of magic and interesting swits.
