Four stories of myth, magic and adventure from the master teller of tales: The Firework Maker's Daughter, I Was A Rat!, Clockwork, The Scarecrow and His Servant.
A devilish inventor, a girl who must face a Fire Fiend, a scarecrow brought to life by a bolt of lightning, and a boy who can only say the words 'I Was a Rat!' . . .
Drawing on the rich tradition of fairytales, these are four incredible stories that will obsess and enchant readers. Includes a prologue and epilogue from the uniquely talented Philip Pullman.
