His Dark Materials Trilogy
An epic quest between worlds. Arctic ice and mortal danger. Fearless writing. Tons of awards. Hold on to your soul. Whatever we say, we’ll never explain how brilliant this series is. Words can’t do it justice. Unless they’re Philip Pullman’s, of course. Witch-queens. Armoured bears. Doors between worlds. Evil scientists. Spirit animals. Epic battles. This trilogy has it all. Just to give you a flavour: it was voted the best-loved Carnegie Medal winner in seventy years. It won the Whitbread Book of the Year Award (the first ever so-called ‘kids’ book to win a major adult literary prize.) It’s sold over 15 million copies, and upset the Pope. Books don’t get more powerful.
