The Lovereading4Kids comment
This is a beguiling new episode from the universe of Philip Pullman's Dark Material trilogy, a story which opens in Oxford some two years after the conclusion of The Amber Spyglass. It's gripping and funny and is Pullman at his masterful best. With Lyra and her daemon happily back at Jordan College their peace is suddenly shattered when something requiring their help tumbles out of the sky. Before long however, it is clear that something is amiss. A perfect stocking filler this xmas and will keep anyone from 9 upwards gainfully amused early on xmas morning.
Lyra's Oxford by Philip Pullman
Contains a short story that finds Lyra with her daemon Pantalaimon. Sitting on the roofs of Oxford, she sees a bird, the daemon of a witch, a storm petrel flying towards her pursued by a huge and angry flock of starlings. This text is illustrated in black and white wood-blocks, together with three-colour pull out maps.
