***COMING SOON A NEW HBO SERIES, HIS DARK MATERIALS, BASED ON PULLMAN'S BOOKS***
The modern fantasy classic that Entertainment Weekly named an "All-Time Greatest Novel" and Newsweek hailed as a "Top 100 Book of All Time." Philip Pullman takes readers to a world where humans have animal familiars and where parallel universes are within reach.
Lyra is rushing to the cold, far North, where witch clans and armored bears rule. North, where the Gobblers take the children they steall--including her friend Roger. North, where her fearsome uncle Asriel is trying to build a bridge to a parallel world.
Can one small girl make a difference in such great and terrible endeavors? This is Lyra
a savage, a schemer, a liar, and as fierce and true a champion as Roger or Asriel could want.
But what Lyra doesn't know is that to help one of them will be to betray the other...
A masterwork of storytelling and suspense, Philip Pullman's award-winning The Golden Compass
is the first in the His Dark Materials series, which continues with The Subtle Knife
and The Amber Spyglass. A #1 New York Times BestsellerWinner of the Guardian Prize for Children's FictionPublished in 40 Countries
