This product is sold out

This hardback copy of Serpentine has been signed by the illustrator, Tom Duxbury. Written by Philip Pullman 16 years ago but not published til autumn 2020, this beautiful little book would be perfect popped in a stocking or two.

A standalone novella, Serpentine takes place after the conclusion of His Dark Materials and finds Lyra and Pan on a perilous journey North in search of an old friend. Pullman says this of Serpentine: “Serpentine is the missing episode that shows us what Lyra did after the events of His Dark Materials and before the The Book of Dust.” 

Lyra Silvertongue and her daemon Pantalaimon have left the events of His Dark Materials behind. Here in this snapshot of their forever-changed lives they return to the North to revisit an old friend where we will learn that things are not exactly as they seem. 

The perfect re-entry for fans of His Dark Materials and a wonderful companion to The Book of Dust. Serpentine is a brand-new treat for Pullman fans old and new.
