New York: Scholastic, 1998.
Pullman loves to weave dramatic childrens' stories, in the tradition of Hansel and Gretel, where innocence is pitted against implacable evil, but love saves the day.
This tale of a master clockmaker and his remorseless creations has all the elements to chill the marrow of your bones.
