These modern classics are must-reads for every book lover. Praise for The Golden Compass Graphic Novel, vol. 2: "Dreamy watercolors organized into neatly ordered panels lend themselves well to the fantastical setting, creating a sense of sweeping cinematic scope. Pullman's original magnum opus is heady and dense, and it may prove challenging for some; this adaptation, with its visual accessibility, can help those struggling with the novel's complexity achieve an understanding without watering down the intricacies."--Kirkus Reviews Praise for The Golden Compass Graphic Novel, vol. 1: “The story’s signature fantasies—the dæmons, the armored mercenary polar bears, and the alethiometer—are realized with compelling force (and, in the case of the dæmons, humor). [This] retelling will bring Pullman’s work new fans and give previous readers new pleasure.” —Publishers Weekly, Starred “Whether this is a reader’s first experience with the tale or they are already familiar with the story, they should be delighted by this rendition.” —School Library Journal “The small and detailed but very clear panels are full of expressive faces, discernible action, and moody shadowing. Readers familiar with Pullman’s novel will appreciate this artistic adaptation, as will readers who simply prefer graphic novels to prose.” —Booklist From the Hardcover edition.

***** Includes an exciting preview of THE BOOK OF DUST, the long-awaited new book from Philip Pullman set in the world of His Dark Materials, arriving October 2017! ***** The modern fantasy classic that Entertainment Weekly named an “All-Time Greatest Novel” and Newsweek hailed as a “Top 100 Book of All Time.” Philip Pullman takes readers to a world where humans have animal familiars and where parallel universes are within reach.

North, where her fearsome uncle Asriel is trying to build a bridge to a parallel world. Can one small girl make a difference in such great and terrible endeavors? This is Lyra: a savage, a schemer, a liar, and as fierce and true a champion as Roger or Asriel could want. But what Lyra doesn't know is that to help on of them will be to betray the other... A masterwork of storytelling and suspense, Philip Pullman's award-winning The Golden Compass is the first in the His Dark Materials series, which contintues with The Subtle Knife, and The Amber Spyglass.

Fantasy-Geschichte im Universitätsstädtchen Oxford: Das kleine Büchlein ist in Leinen gebunden und mit hübschen Schwarzweiss-Drucken illustriert. Es stammt offenbar aus einer Trilogie mit Lyra Listenreichs Abenteuern und ihrem Kater Pantalaimon. Er ist ihr Daemon. Die Fantasy-Geschichte ist überhaupt voller Daemonen, Hexen und Alechemisten, was das friedliche Universitätsstädtchen Oxford von der Iffley Road bis hinüber zur Walton Well Road im Laufe der Erzählung zur schauerlichen Szenerie verzerrt. Eigentlich geht es Lyra dabei an den Kragen, aber die Schwäne retten sie vor dem Schlimmsten. So kann sie in Ruhe im College St. Sophias weiterstudieren. Die Story ist ein kleiner fantastischer Psychothriller mit jenem Quentchen englischen Humors, den nur Insider und Anglophile voll kapieren. Ab 12 Jahren, gut, Ruedi W. Schweizer.
