Publisher's Summary

A beguiling new episode from the universe of His Dark Materials.
Lyra's Oxford opens two years after the conclusion of Philip Pullman's The Amber Spyglass in the comfort and familiarity of Jordan College, where Lyra and her daemon, Pantalaimon, sit on the sun-drenched roof looking out over all of Oxford. But their peace is shattered when a strange bird - a witch's daemon, on it's own - tumbles out of the sky, in search of a healing elixer to cure his witch of a strange new disease. Lyra and Pan decided to help - witches are friends, of course - but the closer their winding walk leads them towards the infamous Oxford alchemist, the stronger Lyra's sense that something is amiss.

Having "Phillip Pullman" as the author should automatically mean the book is 5 stars.

Phenomenal addition to the Dark Materials trilogy. Beautiful literature, a short but truly wonderful story full of little anecdotes from the Dark Materials universe. Helps enrich and complete the already vast universe.
Narrated by the author himself which brings the magic to life.

good little children's' story

dramatised version, with separate voices and music. narrated by the author. generally the dramatisation works well. you need to have read one of his dark materials or seen the film golden compass to understand the world in which it's set properly.
