"Pullman is as fine a writer as there is for young people, and this book is a small gem." (Booklist)
This was a fun "origin" type story for Yorik and Leif, great background and I enjoyed spending more time with two of my favorite characters.
Very good reader...hey, It's the author!!!
I dug it...and any fan of the trilogy it leads to must listen...
His Dark Materials is three books: The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife, and The Amber Spyglass. Once Upon A Time In The North is a ministory and a prequel about Lyras friend the Texan aeronaut Lee Scoresby. The is NOTHING LIKE the Golden Compass. Lyra is NOT in the story and the story takes place years before the events in His Dark Materials. The often repeated foul language was offputting and unexpected. In the end, I liked the original stories much better. Or try a much better series in the first place like Kingdoms and the Elves of the Reaches.
