Product description

Review

Exuberant, intelligent fun . . . Once again Pullman has created a work of art that is enchanting for a child but equally appealing to an adult -- Amanda Craig, The Times

Tantalisingly short, irresistibly snappy and full of dangerous derring-do, Independent

This is a real treat, and easily one of the publishing hightlights of the year that will be devoured by fans old and new, The Bookseller

Small and elegant, the book is exquisitely illustrated with woodcuts by John Lawrence and rounded off with bits of memorabilia including a newspaper clipping giving a different spin on events plus a board game. Fast and powerful, this is an exciting read -- Anne Faundez, Carousel

A short, simple, elegant story . . . cloth-bound, with enhancing woodcuts by master-engraver John Lawrence -- Claudia Fitzherbert, Spectator

Book Description

A wonderful new story, filled with beautiful illustrations, from the bestselling author who brought us LYRA'S OXFORD.
