Bibliophile's Corner

by Philip Pullman

Flap Copy Description:
The world-changing events of The Amber Spyglass are behind them, and Lyra Silvertongue and her daemon, Pantalaimon, find themselves utterly changed as well. In Serpentine, they journey to the far North once more, hoping to ask the consul of witches a most urgent question.
This brand-new story, a beguiling must-read for Pullman fans old and new, is a wonderful companion to His Dark Materials and a fascinating bridge to The Book of Dust.

My Thoughts:
The magic of Philip Pullman's pen is just as present in this seventy-four-page book as it is in all of his other wonderful books. I found myself savoring a word, a phrase, a sentence, as though - all by themselves -  they were works of art. Additionally, the illustrations by Tom Duxbury seem to perfectly illuminate this new, whimsical little tale featuring the much-loved characters of Lyra and Pan. If you're a fan of the books by Philip Pullman, Serpentine is a must-read!
