Synopsis: ***** Just announced! The long-anticipated new work from Mr. Pullman, THE BOOK OF DUST, will be published as a work in three parts, with the first volume to arrive in October 2017! *****


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 steal--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 on 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 contintues with The Subtle Knife, and The Amber Spyglass.
