The Lovereading4Kids comment
The third in Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy. His ‘Dark Materials’, is the story of Lyra, a young girl with an exceptional destiny. Brought up in Jordan College, Oxford Lyra uncovers a secret about her mysterious guardian which leads to some dangerous questioning. It also marks the beginning of Lyra’s search for her friend Roger, a search that takes her to the ice kingdoms of the North where armoured bears rule. Lyra’s courage and stubborn determination lead her on this mission of incredible danger in this brilliant and imaginative story. It’s completely original and totally spellbinding; a true classic that will stand the test of time much in the way Tolkien’s famous work has done.
***Philip Pullman will talk to Nicolette Jones at a special event to mark the 20th Anniversary of the publication of His Dark Materials. In his only public appearance during the anniversary year Pullman will discuss the books, give readings and there will be clips from the Hollywood movie, The Golden Compass.

We're going to the land of the dead and we're going to come back. Will and Lyra, whose fates are bound together by powers beyond their own worlds, have been violently separated. But they must find each other, for ahead of them lies the greatest war that has ever been - and a journey to a dark place from which no one has ever returned...
The third volume in Philip Pullman's incredible His Dark Materials trilogy. First published in 1995, and acclaimed as a modern masterpiece, it won the UK's top awards for children's literature.
