A full-colour beautiful gift edition of this magical story featuring Lyra and Pan, set in the world of Philip Pullman's ground-breaking His Dark Materials and The Book of Dust. Illustrated for the first time by Chris Wormell.
Two years after the events of His Dark Materials, Lyra and her daemon Pantalaimon sit high on the roof of Jordan College, gazing down on the streets of Oxford. But their peace is shattered by a flock of enraged starlings, who seem intent on knocking another bird out of the sky - a bird that Lyra and Pan quickly realise is a witch's daemon. The daemon carries worrying tidings of a terrible sickness spreading in the north, and claims that only Lyra can help him - but is he really friend, or foe?
Illustrated throughout for the first time by Chris Wormell, this is the perfect gift for Pullman fans old and new.
Lyra is all grown up in the latest instalment of the Book of Dust series, which has plenty to say about life and politics in 2019.
Michael Sheen returns to narrate The Secret Commonwealth, the second instalment in Philip Pullman’s The Book of Dust trilogy. Watch how the Welsh actor immerses himself in the Pullman world to develop unique character voices.
