Praise For His Dark Materials: Lyra's Oxford…
"His Dark Materials is easily the most deservedly labeled epic of contemporary epic fantasies; here as a pendant to that trilogy is a short story that even in its brevity manages to capture some of the majesty--and mystery--of the parent work."--The Horn Book Magazine
"Fans who can't get enough of Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy will embrace this small volume, which packages a short story about Lyra along with such ephemera as a beautifully engraved, fold-out map of the alternate-reality Oxford which Lyra inhabits. Puzzle enthusiasts will enjoy poring over the clues."--Publishers Weekly
