01Northern Lights20171104

Philip Pullman's epic worlds trilogy begins with Lyra delving into the mystery of 'Dust'.

11-year-old Lyra Belaqua lives in an Oxford college in a world parallel to ours, a place where souls exist externally in the form of an animal, a daemon. Lyra discovers that there are dark forces at work involving the kidnapping of children and a curious substance called "Dust".

She's catapulted into a life-and-death struggle to save not only herself but the future of all worlds - a struggle that will take her beyond The Northern Lights...
