About this book
Finally, a welcome return of the indefatigable Lyra from the phenomenal "His Dark Materials" trilogy, set two years after the end of "The Amber Spyglass". After a plea for help from a witch's daemon, Lyra begins to realise that something is amiss. Gripping as ever, this wonderfully illustrated short story offers a satisfying epilogue to the unparalleled trilogy, the first instalment of which will released as a major film, "The Golden Compass", at a similar time. Ages: 12+.
Contains a short story that finds Lyra with her daemon Pantalaimon. Sitting on the roofs of Oxford, she sees a bird, the daemon of a witch, a storm petrel flying towards her pursued by a huge and angry flock of starlings. This text is illustrated in black and white wood-blocks, together with three-colour pull out maps.
