Haroun and the Sea of Stories by Salman Rushdie

"Don't you know girls have to fool people  every day  of their lives  if they want to get anywhere?

I absolutely loved this fairy tale by Salman Rushdie. It it gorgeous with snippets of tongue in cheek delight and vivid imagery that will enchant the reader. Haroun's father is a master story teller who has lost the ability to recount his previously miraculous tales. In order to bring back more stories, Haroun embarks on a magical adventure to the sea of stories. Throw in the odd Beatles reference, ooh look a walrus, and you will find yourself in an alien landscape chock full of fun.

5 out of 5 magical tales spun like gold.
