About This Book
In the astonishing finale to the His Dark Materials trilogy, Lyra and Will are in unspeakable danger. With help from Iorek Byrnison the armored bear and two tiny Gallivespian spies, they must journey to a dank and gray-lit world where no living soul has ever gone. All the while, Dr. Mary Malone builds a magnificent Amber Spyglass. An assassin hunts her down, and Lord Asriel, with a troop of shining angels, fights his mighty rebellion, in a battle of strange allies—and shocking sacrifice.

As war rages and Dust drains from the sky, the fate of the living—and the dead—finally comes to depend on two children and the simple truth of one simple story.

    Grimm Tales for Young and Old
    In this enchanting selection of fairy tales, award–winning author Philip Pullman presents his fifty favorite stories from the Brothers Grimm in a “clear as water” retelling, making them feel fresh and unfamiliar with his dark, distinctive voice. From the otherworldly romance of classics such as “Rapunzel”, “Snow White”, and “Cinderella” to the black wit and strangeness of such lesser–known tales as “The Three Snake Leaves”, “Hans–my–Hedgehog”, and “Godfather Death”, Pullman captures the appeal that has held the imagination of children and adults alike for centuries. In his introduction, he discusses why these stories have lasted so long, and become part of our collective storytelling imagination. Pullman's Grimm Tales of wicked wives, brave children, and villainous kings will have you listening again and again for many years to come.
