This week I’m eagerly waiting on:
La Belle Sauvage by Philip Pullman
Expected publication: 19th October 2017
Publisher: Random House
Eleven-year-old Malcolm Polstead and his dæmon, Asta, live with his parents at the Trout Inn near Oxford. Across the River Thames (which Malcolm navigates often using his beloved canoe, a boat by the name of La Belle Sauvage) is the Godstow Priory where the nuns live. Malcolm learns they have a guest with them, a baby by the name of Lyra Belacqua . . .
Why I’m eagerly awaiting…
I’ve literally been waiting for this prequel for about fifteen years now, ever since I first read His Dark Materials as a teenager. This is part one of a new companion trilogy titled The Book of Dust. I’m quite excited for it.
