The popularity of the His Dark Materials trilogy has generated a major motion picture, a stage play, video games, and a new prequel. The series has also been highly controversial with its use of exciting adventure stories for children to comment on organized religion. These books have piqued the interest of the contributors to this fascinating volume, who use it to probe the philosophical issues that inform them. Could a golden compass, or alethiometer, really work? Can a person's soul or daemon have a mind of its own? What are the ramifications of pursuing the diabolical "intercision" process, or of trying to bring about the death of God, a plot that Lyra and her mysterious Father struggle over? These are some of the questions explored by these essays that try to get to the heart of Lyra's bewildering, inspiring, and multifaceted world.

A UK and American bestseller, as well as the basis for a major film to be released in 2007, His Dark Materials trilogy is an unusual young adult series thanks to its richly imagined world, rigorously explored cosmology and unflinching confrontation of the modern answers to the Big Questions. Yeffeth helps readers find their way through Pullman's trilogy, from the streets of Lyra's Oxford to Dr. Malone's lab, from the republic of Heaven to the harpy-ruled pit of Hell.

Praise for The Golden Compass Graphic Novel, vol. 2: "Dreamy watercolors organized into neatly ordered panels lend themselves well to the fantastical setting, creating a sense of sweeping cinematic scope. Pullman's original magnum opus is heady and dense, and it may prove challenging for some; this adaptation, with its visual accessibility, can help those struggling with the novel's complexity achieve an understanding without watering down the intricacies."--Kirkus Reviews Praise for The Golden Compass Graphic Novel, vol. 1: “The story’s signature fantasies—the dæmons, the armored mercenary polar bears, and the alethiometer—are realized with compelling force (and, in the case of the dæmons, humor). [This] retelling will bring Pullman’s work new fans and give previous readers new pleasure.” —Publishers Weekly, Starred “Whether this is a reader’s first experience with the tale or they are already familiar with the story, they should be delighted by this rendition.” —School Library Journal “The small and detailed but very clear panels are full of expressive faces, discernible action, and moody shadowing. Readers familiar with Pullman’s novel will appreciate this artistic adaptation, as will readers who simply prefer graphic novels to prose.” —Booklist From the Hardcover edition.

The modern fantasy classic that Entertainment Weekly named an “All-Time Greatest Novel” and Newsweek hailed as a “Top 100 Book of All Time.” Philip Pullman takes readers to a world where humans have animal familiars and where parallel universes are within reach.

North, where her fearsome uncle Asriel is trying to build a bridge to a parallel world. Can one small girl make a difference in such great and terrible endeavors? This is Lyra: a savage, a schemer, a liar, and as fierce and true a champion as Roger or Asriel could want. But what Lyra doesn't know is that to help one of them will be to betray the other... A masterwork of storytelling and suspense, Philip Pullman's award-winning The Golden Compass is the first in the His Dark Materials series, which continues with The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass.
