The official Tinder book trailer

tinder coverOur friends over at Fierce Fiction have come up trumps this autumn; when Gollancz saw the beautiful Tinder hardback editions, they went a little nuts for them, as did a few of their followers on Twitter. Tinder is the gorgeous new book from Sally Gardner, and illustrated by David Roberts. Inspired by the fairy tale The Tinderbox, it is the story of Otto Hundebiss, who is tired of war, and the beautiful Safire – pure of heart and spirit. When Otto defies Death, he walks a dangerous path. A half beast half man gives him shoes and dice which will lead him deep into a web of dark magic and mystery. He learns the powers of the tinderbox and the wolves whose master he becomes. But will all the riches in the world bring him the thing he most desires?

We are pleased to share with you the trailer for Tinder, which shows just some of the stunning illustrations from David Roberts.
