Product description

What Lila wants to be more than anything else in the world is ...a Firework-Maker! But firework-making is not just about being able to make Crackle-Dragons and Golden Sneezes. There is also one special secret: every Firework-Maker must make a perilous journey to face the terrifying Fire-Fiend! Not knowing that she needs special protection to survive the Fire-Fiend's flames, Lila sets off alone. Her friends, Chulak and Hamlet - the King's white elephant - race after her. But can they possibly reach her in time?

Review quote

"One of those rare books with a confident magic all their own - sheer genius" Independent "Full of hilarious, lovable characters this is a book you will want to read over and over again" The Sunday Times "Pullman knows it is not enough to bargain on the richness of children's minds: successful writing of this kind depends on the creation of imaginative worlds that have enough internal coherence to be not only comprehensible but inhabitable" Independent on Sunday "A wonderfully written adventure story" Guardian "A brilliant book" Derby Evening Telegraph
