"This comical adventure about a girl who longs to follow in her father's footsteps crackles with Pullman's usual flair." (Publishers Weekly)
"Narrator Lambert is a marvelous teller....Delicious entertainment for families highlights Pullman's keen, literate writing." (AudioFile)
You can learn as much from a terrible book as a brilliantly written one.
The Seeing Stone was the first King Arther book I read. I think this is a good book however, for a bookthat is about magic, this book need more magic in it. If someone wants to read a magic book, I recormand them to try the Septimous Heap books. It's full of exiting events, lots of magic and interesting swits.
Super children's story full of vibrant colour and character. Delightful. A great performance of it too by the narrator.
I love Pullman, but this is not his best work. The narrator is clearly a good actor, but trying to do the voice of a young girl when you're a grown man is actually a little creepy and the effect was jarring.
