PHILIP PULLMAN’S NEW TRILOGY GETS OFF TO A STUNNING START

BOOK OF THE MONTH

THE BOOK OF DUST VOLUME ONE: LA BELLE SAUVAGE

Philip Pullman/Penguin Random House and David Fickling

→ This is the hugely anticipated first volume in Philip Pullman’s new trilogy, a follow up to his fantastical Dark Materials series. Set in a recognisable, enchanted version of reality where humans are twinned with their animal daemons, the book opens 10 years before the events of the previous series, with a new protagonist, 11-year-old Malcolm Polstead, and his daemon Asta. A clever and curious boy, when Malcolm isn’t helping in the Trout, his parents’ riverside pub, he is out exploring the waterways of Oxford in his canoe, La Belle Sauvage. One day he secretly observes a strange man drop something on the riverbank before being led away by two men from the feared Consistorial Court of Discipline. His daemon Asta retrieves this artefact from the undergrowth and soon Malcolm is holding a clue to a great metaphysical mystery: the fields of energy affecting Dust itself. Packed with action and characters familiar from the earlier series, La Belle Sauvage marks the triumphant return of Pullman and his sumptuous, exhilarating stories celebrating the creative intelligence and courage of children. Epic! Out now
