Winning Britain's Carnegie Medal in 1995 (and later the "Carnegie of Carnegies" as the top choice over all past winners), Philip Pullman's first His Dark Materials novel is a modern classic. It is presented here in a dramatic illustrated edition—with images up to 18 inches across—for readers 10 and up and also adults who grew up with the series and want to explore it all over again. Follow the adventures of Lyra Belacqua and her friends in a world much like our own yet very different, where every human has a personal daemon (an animal manifestation of their soul), and powerful forces are fighting over the control of Dust, seeking a bridge between worlds.
"Sure to evoke nostalgia in existing fans and instill wonder in those new to the series."—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
