The long awaited latest book from Philip Pullman...
The Book of Dust: Volume 1: La Belle Sauvage
Malcolm was the landlord's son, an only child...
he had friends enough, but he was happiest on his own
playing with his daemon Asta in their canoe,
which was called La Belle Sauvage.
Malcolm Polstead's life in the pub beside the Thames
is safe and happy, if uneventful.
But during a winter of unceasing rain, the forces of science,
religion and politics begin to clash, and as the weather rises
to a pitch of ferocity, all of Malcolm's
certainties are torn asunder.
Finding himself linked to a baby by the name of Lyra,
Malcolm is forced to undertake the challenge of his life
and to make a dangerous journey that will change
him and Lyra forever...
