Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin. 

What Lila wants to be more than anything else in the world is...a Firework-Maker!

But firework-making is not just about being able to make Crackle-Dragons and Golden Sneezes. There is also one special secret: every Firework-Maker must make a perilous journey to face the terrifying Fire-Fiend!

Not knowing that she needs special protection to survive the Fire-Fiend's flames, Lila sets off alone. Her friends, Chulak and Hamlet - the king's white elephant - race after her. But can they possibly reach her in time?

Very enjoyable

It was a compelling story that for pre teens
and others gave a valuable compass point to living a good life. Not preaching but sign posting a way forward that all,of us young and old need in today’s challenging world
