Literature for children
on 29 August 2012
We bought The Firework Maker's Daughter from the school fete on Saturday and were so gripped by it we had to buy more Philip Pullman stories. This compendium includes three other stories in the same modern fairy tale vein and is excellent value compared to buying the books seperately. It is however quite a large book so not suitable for travelling. The stories use language quite precisely and introduce lots of ideas, so I spent as much time explaining things to my nine year old as they did reading the books, which is no bad thing, but do expect to have some parental involvement.
