The Lovereading4Kids comment
The three volumes of this award-winning trilogy are beautifully presented in this mighty single volume. Set in two parallel universes, the story of Lyra, a young orphan and her demon Pantalaimon begins in Oxford. Swept up in a dangerous plot against children, Lyra and Pantalaimon set off for the frozen north on a terrifying mission to save the children from their terrible fate. The subsequent volumes follows Lyra on her quest to discover more about the mysterious substance, Dust. One of the finest contemporary books, His Dark Materials enjoyed by adults as children alike.
His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman
The extraordinary story moves between parallel universes. Beginning in Oxford, it takes Lyra and her animal-daemon Pantalaimon on a dangerous rescue mission to the ice kingdoms of the far North, where she begins to learn about the mysterious particles they call Dust - a substance for which a terrible war between different worlds will be fought... This trilogy is one of the great imaginative works in the English language. And it contains one of the bestillains in all literature . (Terry Jones). Philip Pullman has won the CILIP Carnegie Medal, the Guardian Children's Fiction Award, the Children's Book of the Year - British Book Awards, the Whitbread Book of the Year, the Eleanor Farjeon Award and the Astrid Lindgren Award.
