Philip Pullman’s magnificent bestseller is now in paperback, with new additional illustrations. A coming of age story like no other . . .
Malcolm Polstead’s Oxford life has been one in all routine, odd even.
He is happiest playing together with his daemon, Asta, of their canoe, La Belle Sauvage. But now as the rain builds, the arena around Malcolm and Asta is, it sort of feels, set to turn into more and more a ways from odd.
Finding himself linked to a baby by the name of Lyra Belacqua, Malcolm is forced to undertake the challenge of his life and to make a dangerous journey for you to change him and Lyra for ever . . .
