Winner - Author of the Year, British Book Awards
Philip Pullman's magnificent bestseller now in paperback, with new additional illustrations. A coming of age story like no other . . .
 
Malcolm Polstead's Oxford life has been one of routine, ordinary even.  He is happiest playing with his daemon, Asta, in their canoe, La Belle Sauvage. But now as the rain builds, the world around Malcolm and Asta is, it seems, set to become increasingly far from ordinary.
 
Finding himself linked to a baby by  the name of Lyra Belacqua, Malcolm is forced to undertake the challenge of his life and to make a dangerous journey that will change him and Lyra for ever . . .
