Format: Paperback
Plenty of fun to be had in this tale of a storyteller and his son. Rushdie imagines a world of light and dark, noise and silence, with some memorable characters and places. It's all done with great imagination and no small wit - reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland. Really, it's a children's storybook, but with plenty to keep the adults entertained as well.

With Haroun Rusdie is amazing. A book of literature of words meant to excite, entertain, endear and enthuse the reader. A book written for children on the surface, a story which children should be thoroughly entertained by, but also a story that has the capacity to grasp the heart, soul - every fibre of the being of any person of any age and provide a fantastically vibrant read. Definitely read this book, along side the story being amazing it is highly literate, clever and insightful, amusing, plus a whole list of words and descriptions that could go on for a very long time, enough words possibly to fill the ocean....

Format: Paperback
I love this book. What's more, my daughter is loving it too, and she's only 4 1/2! I hadn't considered reading it to her but she's constantly bugging me to get more stories and one day I went "ark! I can't, all gone, no more stories, empty, sold out, sorry, supply dried up, no longer a subscriber!" So I got it out and started to read and she no longer wants to watch Cartoon Network (true! amazing, I never thought I'd get her off TV!). This is the book for everyone with a bit of imagination and a love for words and stories.

This is a gem of a book and should be read by all! I must have purchased this over 8 times to give away as gifts and let me say this was not to parents! Rushdie always provides depth and character but this surpasses all - a wonderful, refreshing and absorbing tale - do read it

Format: Paperback
This book is amazing- the language is so rich, and the story is exciting and frightening. There are characters that have to be some of the best characters in childrens' fiction, for example Butt the mad bus driver. However, the book is not just for children- there are so many clever messages and references that it will keep anyone coming back for more...My Dad used to read this book to me when I was younger and now it's one of my favourite books. I have read it over and over again, and I'll need to buy a copy to take to university with me, because I keep stealing it off my Dad!

Format: Hardcover
This book was given to Angus for Christmas 1999 (thank you Jane and Jes).He is seven years old and is compelled to read it every night, either with or without parent. He then describes every item of information at length as it is such an absorbing and fantastic tale to keep any child's imagination alive and well throughout the year 2000 and beyond. A must have. The pictures are entirely faithful to the story, colourful, styalised. I never imagined Salman Rushdie as a children's author. A cross between Lewis Carroll and Roald Dahl. I am just going to order a copies for my nephews.

Format: Paperback
Word of warning: This is probably the best childrens' book ever. You will find yourself thrusting it at all comers. It is a fairy story, a cautionary tale and a wish for things to revert to the way theu were when we were children.
If you are fluent in Urdu you will enjot it even more as most of the names and places are puns on common Urdu words.
DO read this. It will transport you and delight you.
Unputdownable.

Format: Paperback
Haroun and the Sea of Stories truly is one of the greatest books for children ever written.
It contains the most compelling, vivid, descriptive writing I have ever read, and the story and the memory of reading it haunts me still (I must have first read it about 10 years ago when it was first published)
Although it is a childrens book, this is a book not only for children. The magic of the story and its progression will transport even the most jaded of readers to a new understanding and appreciation of . . . well, everything.
This should be compulsory reading for everyone, everywhere
