The Book of Dust – Philip Pullman
Philip Pullman returns to the world of His Dark Materials with this magnificent new novel, set ten years before Northern Lights and featuring his much-loved character, Lyra Belacqua.
Eleven-year-old Malcolm Polstead and his dæmon, Asta, live with his parents at the Trout Inn near Oxford. Across the River Thames (which Malcolm navigates often using his beloved canoe, a boat by the name of La Belle Sauvage) is the Godstow Priory where the nuns live. Malcolm learns they have a guest with them; a baby by the name of Lyra Belacqua . . .
Why I Can’t Wait:
His Dark Materials is one of my favourite series so I’m incredibly excited to return to that world. I’ve ordered the Waterstones Deluxe Collector’s Edition but I also want the standard hardback as the woodcut style cover is stunning.
Release Date: 19 October 2017
