Michael Rosen approves of Philip Pullman's latest picaresque fiction, The Scarecrow And His Servant, and also recomends his retelling of Aladdin And The Enchanted Lamp:

Pullman has gone for a full-scale retelling, returning to some of the scholarly versions of the tale. In so doing, he's avoided the over-floweriness of those editions and his dialogue is, as you'd expect, direct and to the point. It all makes for a fine gift book and good family reading.
