Four Tales
  • Four Tales

  • Four stories of myth, magic and adventure from the master teller of tales

    The Firework Maker's Daughter
    I Was A Rat!
    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, author of His Dark Materials

    'Exciting, scary, romantic and deliciously readable' Guardian

    'Full of hilarious, loveable characters' Sunday Times
