Once Upon a Time in the North

Innbundet / 2018 / Engelsk
A mesmerising episode from the universe of His Dark Materials and The Book of Dust, giving us an extraordinary insight into this world and its characters. When Lyra is studying at Oxford University, she comes across the story of Lee Scoresby and Iorek Byrnisson's first meeting, many years ago, along with much evidence of the adventure that brought them together.She discovers that when a young Texan balloonist Lee came down to earth in the harbour of an Arctic town in the North, little did he realise that he is about to be caught in a war between the residents of the town and the huge arctic bears that also live there.And when Lee meets one of these bears - Iorek - for the first time, they cement a friendship that will continue throughout their lives, as the tensions in the town threaten to erupt ...Another wonderful tale from a master story-teller, which includes beautiful illustrations and maps.

Exuberant, intelligent fun . . . Once again Pullman has created a work of art that is enchanting for a child but equally appealing to an adult -- Amanda Craig * The Times *Tantalisingly short, irresistibly snappy and full of dangerous derring-do * Independent *This is a real treat, and easily one of the publishing hightlights of the year that will be devoured by fans old and new * The Bookseller *Small and elegant, the book is exquisitely illustrated with woodcuts by John Lawrence and rounded off with bits of memorabilia including a newspaper clipping giving a different spin on events plus a board game. Fast and powerful, this is an exciting read -- Anne Faundez * Carousel *A short, simple, elegant story . . . cloth-bound, with enhancing woodcuts by master-engraver John Lawrence -- Claudia Fitzherbert * Spectator *
