- Full Description
Published in 50 countries with over 22 million copies sold, The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife, and The Amber Spyglass are renowned for their engrossing storytelling and epic scope. These modern classics are must-reads for every fan of great fantasy epics. Lyra is an ordinary girl with an extraordinary role to play in the fates of multiple worlds, in an entirely fresh way: her journey to the far north, her escape via hot-air balloon, and her crucial role in Lord Asriel’s ambitions to build a bridge to another world.
This covers a lot of detailed story, and thus instead of a typical 3-tier page, it uses a 4-tier format on most pages. It presents far more detail and dialogue than the typical graphic novel--this will take some time to read, and it's a trip worth the effort. We hope to see the 2nd and 3rd books also adapted, since it looks like there will be just the one film.
“The story’s signature fantasies—the dæmons, the armored mercenary polar bears, and the alethiometer—are realized with compelling force. [This] retelling will bring Pullman’s work new fans and give previous readers new pleasure.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review
“Belongs in all libraries that include Pullman’s works.” —School Library Journal
