Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
Set in the Far East, this is the story of a little girl who makes a perilous journey to meet the "fire-fiend" in order to fulfil her dream of becoming a "real" firework-maker like her father. The author is a winner of the Guardian Children's Fiction Award.

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

Review:
"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)
