Benny Kaminsky and Thunderbolt Dobney lead a rag-tag gang of neighborhood rowdies. Their territory is the New Cut on London's South Banka place bristling with swindlers, bookies, pickpockets, and the occasional policeman. And their aim is to solve crimes.
Filled with silly sleuthing, improbable disguises, crazy ruses, and merry mayhem, these stories are action-packed romps from one of the best storytellers ever—Philip Pullman.
“Beware the seven blessings . . . ” When she first utters these words, 16-year-old Sally Lockhart doesn’t know their meaning. But when an employee of her late father hears them, he dies of fear. Thus begins Sally’s terrifying journey into the seamy underworld of Victorian London, in search of clues to her father’s mysterious death.
FOR THE FIRST time, all three books of Philip Pullman's award-winning
His Dark Materials trilogy (The Golden Compass, The Subtle
Knife, and The Amber Spyglass) will be published in their
entirety in one volume. Perfect for both new and established
Pullman fans who want to read (or reread) the whole trilogy
before The Golden Compass movie debuts.
In this new prequel episode from Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials universe, Lee Scoresby--Texan aeronaut and future friend to Lyra Belacqua--is just 24 years old, and he's recently won his hot-air balloon in a poker game. He finds himself floating North, where he and his hare daemon Hester are quickly tangled in a deadly plot.
