La Belle Sauvage: The Book of Dust Volume One




Philip Pullman returns to the world of His Dark Materials with this magnificent first volume of The Book of Dust - now available in paperback and illustrated throughout by Chris Wormell.

Malcolm Polstead's Oxford life has been one of routine, ordinary even. He is happiest playing with his daemon, Asta, in their canoe, La Belle Sauvage. But now as the rain builds, the world around Malcolm and Asta is, it seems, set to become increasingly far from ordinary.

Finding himself linked to a baby by the name of Lyra Belacqua, Malcolm is forced to undertake the challenge of his life and to make a dangerous journey that will change him and Lyra forever . . .
