Description

The arrival of Lyra's fearsome uncle, Lord Asriel, to Jordan College draws her to the heart of a terrible struggle-a struggle born of Gobblers and stolen children, witch clans and armored bears. As she hurtles toward danger in the far North, young Lyra never suspects the shocking truth... Philip Pullman's award-winning "The Golden Compass" is a masterwork of storytelling and suspense, critically acclaimed and hailed as a modern fantasy classic. And now, found archival documents, written by Philip Pullman and hand lettered and illustrated by Ian Beck, are included in this keepsake package for the first time ever.show more
