The Book of Dust: La Belle Sauvage

19 October 2017

Philip Pullman's long-awaited return to the world of His Dark Materials is finally here - THE BOOK OF DUST publishes today from David Fickling Books in association with Penguin Random House!

Returning to the world of Lyra and dæmons, Dust and the Magistrium, for the first time in a novel since The Amber Spyglass, seventeen years ago, Philip Pullman takes us into a magnificent new story set 10 years before the events of Northern Lights.

We warmly invite you to join us in The Trout Inn in Godstow, just north of Oxford, where young Malcolm Polstead is about to find himself caught up in events that will utterly change his world...

And LA BELLE SAUVAGE is not the only wonder Philip Pullman has for readers.

DAEMON VOICES: ESSAYS ON STORYTELLING is also being released, giving readers an unprecedented insight into Philip Pullman's own stories, the craft of writing and the storytellers who have meant the most to him...
