In a universe like and unlike our own, Lyra Belaqua and Pantalaimon, her shapeshifting daemon, must make their way into the mysterious North to rescue her friend Roger, abducted by the "gobblers," child stealers who will stop at nothing in their quest for metaphysical perfection. She is also following her beloved Uncle Asriel, whose own investigations into the northern lights have taken him to the utmost top of the world as well. What is the fate of the stolen children and how does it relate to Lyra's mysterious uncle?
Kids entering grades 4 to 8 are invited to join us for a biweekly discussion and activity. All titles are available as eBooks and physical copies will also be available for check out at the Little Italy Branch.
