Award-winning novelist and master storyteller Salman Rushdie delivers once again with this enthralling fantasy novel aimed at younger readers. A follow-up to an earlier adult novel, Haroun and the Sea of Stories, Luka and the Fire of Life follows the adventures of a young boy and his talking pets as they set off on a quest to save his father's life. So, gather the kiddies in your life and settle into a comfy chair — Luka and the Fire of Life is just the kind of engaging novel that simply begs to be read out loud. Fast paced, exciting, and written with humor, wit, and whimsy, everyone will hang on your breath as you turn the pages. Recommended for readers ages 14 and up.
