Product description

Amazon Review

Lila wants to be a firework maker just like her father, but before she can even start she has to make a hazardous, life-threatening journey to the den of the evil Fire-Fiend, battling her way through strange lands and nightmarish scenarios with elephants and pirates and strange beasts a-plenty tempting her from her path.

Philip Pullman has plucked a rare, exotic and totally bewitching idea from thin air and has turned it into the kind of magical adventure that all children dream of, crackling and sparkling with the same thrilling intensity as the fireworks in Lila's dreams. Lila herself is divine--the perfect blend of light-footed heroine and stubborn adventurer--and The Firework- Maker's Daughter, illustrated by Nick Harris, is a deserving winner of the Smarties Book Prize. A simply superb, gripping, action-packed adventure that will live long in the memory of anyone who enters Lila's world. --Susan Harrison

Review

"Adapted for the stage in a colourful and musical manner. Catchy tunes, impressive costumes and subtle yet effective special effects make for a fun family day out and highlights include the stunning costume of talking white elephant Hamlet and the beautifully crafted puppets used to help tell the tale." - Amy Burns, "The Stage" --The Stage --This text refers to the MP3 CD edition.
