Bakat - Keberanian - Nasib baik.

"Aku ingin menjadi pembuat kembang api," Lila berhasil berkata.
Razvani tertawa keras sekali.
"Kau? Tidak mungkin! Dan apa yang kauinginkan dariku?"
"Sulfur Bangsawan," jawab Lila tersedak.

Mendengar itu Razvani menepuk sisi tubuhnya sendiri dan tertawa semakin keras, lalu seruan mengejek dan pekukan girang terdengar dari semua setan api.
"Sulfur Bangsawan? Kalian dengar itu? Oh, hebat! Lucu sekali! Nah, bicaralah, Nak: apakah kau memiliki Tiga Bekal?"

The Firework-Makers Daughter
Philip Pullman
I knew of the author from ‘His Dark Materials’ trilogy, though I have not read them myself.
This was one of the quickest books I have ever read, I know it’s not that long, but I couldn’t help myself. The story is set in a far off country in a past time, Malaysia around 1900 I would guess, but it isn’t really significant.
The story is exciting throughout, engaging the imagination in so many ways, visualising demons, spirits, jungle, or volcano, but more t

I really liked this book and I could not put it down. There is a really good emphasis on the use of sound when describing each setting in the story. It is also a good story to use when looking at journeys. This is because of the obvious journey Lila takes to find the Fire Fiend and also the journey that both Lila and Chulak take in themselves. There is also the element of acquiring knowledge in this story. However, this knowledge is not necessarily what the characters originally set out to seek ...more

Buah jatuh tak jauh dari pohonnya. Itulah yang terjadi pada Lila, putri semata wayang dari si pembuat kembang api, Lalchand. Namun karena kekhawatiran (yang kadang berlebihan) dari orang tua, maka Lila nekat mencari Sulfur Bangsawan seorang diri, dan tanpa bekal yang memadai. Akan tetapi, berkat Tiga Bekal yang secara tidak sadar telah dimilikinya, perjalanannya membuahkan hasil.

Kisah anak-anak yang ditulis dengan, gaya khas Pullman, cerdas tapi sederhana. Meski singkat, tetapi dengan luwes dia

The Firework-Maker’s Daughter is a short children’s book written by Phillip Pullman and it’s a little gem. Pullman pulls off a perfect recipe of magic, adventure and pure fun in this sparkling little fairy tale.

Lila is the daughter of the talented firework maker Lachland. All Lila wants is to become a true firework maker herself, but to do so she must make the perilous journey to the fire-fiend Razvani and bring back some Royal Sulphur. What’s worse, she sets off before her father can tell her t

Can be read to any age but more likely to be aimed at year 3 and above to read alone.
I did enjoy this book but I think there was little for children in it. The talking elephant will hold some enjoyment for them but other than that I feel that the content may be a little dull for young children. I would not recommend it unless used in a project for art or maybe drama.

Nunca sei bem o que esperar de Philip Pullman. Por um lado, o cara escreveu uma das maiores - ao menos eu considero - obras da ficção fantástica (e se você ainda não leu a trilogia Fronteiras do Universo... Shame on You!). Por outro, até hoje não consigo engolir o final de A Borboleta Tatuada; e se amei de paixão Sally e o Mistério do Rubi (que indico e recomendo para qualquer um que goste de romances policiais na Era Vitoriana), só terminei Sally e a Sombra do Norte por pura teimosia.

Read with my school class- I really enjoyed the strong determined female lead. Sometimes the sentence structure was a bit long winded, lots of long sentences with 'and', 'and', 'and'... but overall a good enjoyable read!

Alhasil sedari kecil ia sudah mengenal macam-macam kembang api dan bagaimana cara membuatnya. Ia belajar membuat kembang api Monyet Melompat, Cahaya Java, Air Mancur Krakatau dan masih banyak lagi.

This is a coming of age story, Lila turns from being egocentric to thinking about others. In the book, she runs away from home without telling her father. She goes on this journey by herself and discovers that she not only has determination, but independence. Secondly, Lila has good friends, which everyone should have. We were meant to live in community together, to help each other out in times of crisis and to be honest with one another, which this story has both. Thirdly, Lila has a father tha ...more

Lila wants nothing more than to follow in her father's footsteps and become a fully fledged firework-maker.

Through a bit of trickery, she finds out that to become a true firework-maker she must travel to Mount Merapi and face down the Fire-Fiend for some Royal Sulphur.
