Synopsis

The graphic novel adaptation of The Golden Compass, one of the most celebrated books of all time, is now complete! This edition contains all three volumes--the entire story.

Published in 50 countries with over 22 million copies sold, The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife, and The Amber Spyglass are renowned for their engrossing storytelling and epic scope. These modern classics are must-reads for every book lover.

Now, in this graphic novel adaptation of The Golden Compass, the world of His Dark Materials is brought to visual life. The stunning full-color art will offer both new and returning readers a chance to experience the story of Lyra, an ordinary girl with an extraordinary role to play in the fates of multiple worlds, in an entirely fresh way.

This volume collects the full journey of Lyra to the far north, her rescue of the kidnapped children at Bolvangar, her escape via hot-air balloon, and her crucial role in Lord Asriel's ambitions to build a bridge to another world.

Praise for The Golden Compass Graphic Novel:

"The story's signature fantasies--the daemons, the armored mercenary polar bears, and the alethiometer--are realized with compelling force. [This] retelling will bring Pullman's work new fans and give previous readers new pleasure." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Belongs in all libraries that include Pullman's works." --School Library Journal

"Pullman's original magnum opus is heady and dense, and it may prove challenging for some; this adaptation, with its visual accessibility, can help those struggling with the novel's complexity achieve an understanding without watering down the intricacies." --Kirkus Reviews
