Five breathtaking tales from the dazzling pen of the nation’s most celebrated children’s author. Open young eyes to the power of fiction with superb short novels that shimmer with fairytale elements. There’s the hapless rat who turns into a little boy, the sinister secret of a German clockmaker, a scarecrow’s journey of self-discovery, and a girl’s brave battle with the evil Fire-Fiend. Drawing on influences such as Grimm’s fairytales and The Wizard of Oz, these stories have the deft touch of a master at work. As in the story Clockwork, their simplicity and charm masks the hidden complexity whereby a host of magical elements are woven into a single glittering whole.
