    Philip Pullman is a powerful storyteller He leaves subtle fingerprints of magic on everything he touches A little hint of shimmer and glitter spills in between the words that he forms and the stories that he writes I will always consider him and his writing as a childhood treasure I was delighted to find out, that these four tales in fact are fairy tales Simple traditional tales

    Four stories written in a traditional style to emulate the Grimm brothers Hans Christian Andersen In this sense they were well done However, in terms of holding my interest the stories were rather hit and miss I enjoyed I was a Rat and Clockwork but the other two seemed to lack substance Philip...

    A compilation of four of Pullman s original almost fairytales As a collection it was very impressive and beautiful, which a book really ought to be if possible the stories are great, and fit together very well thematically My favourite was probably Clockwork something that surprised me, as I was definitely expecting it to be I Was a Rat if only for nostalgia s sake but they re all good fun, and excellently written.<
