Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Haroun's father is the greatest of all storytellers. His magical stories bring laughter to the sad city of Alifbay.

But one day something goes wrong and his father runs out of stories to tell.

Haroun is determined to return the storyteller's gift to his father. So he flies off on the back of the Hoopie bird to the Sea of Stories - and a fantastic adventure begins.

Brilliant weaving of profound meanings

Reminded me of Philip Pullman’s The firework maker’s daughter. Enjoyed it immensely. Excellent narrator too.

Wonderful.

Brilliant magical realist novel, great for children and adults. Hidden politicalities with a twist of fantasy and obvious storytelling.
