Once Upon a Time in the North – Philip Pullman

once upon a time in the north

A crooked politician and an equally corrupt businessman, a pending election with universal implications, one ice-cold killer and the initial meeting of two friends; Philip Pullman masterfully takes all these elements and weaves an interesting prequel to the classic, His Dark Materials, trilogy.

The initial meeting of Texas aeronaut Lee Scoresby – the winner of a hot-air balloon in a recent poker game – and his hare daemon, Hester, with the armored bear, Iorek Byrnison, is explored in this action-packed adventure.

I was so excited when I realized that this book was about Lee Scoresby.  He was one of my favorite characters from The Golden Compass series.  Talk about your action hero…that’s Lee.  – Jessica, Teen Librarian
