Mamma's Book Review: His Dark Materials, Phillip Pullman

Book 1 of the His Dark Materials trilogy, The Golden Compass 

by Phillip Pullman

"Lyra Belaqua is content to run wild among the scholars of Jordan College with her daemon familiar always by her side. But the arrival of her fearsome uncle, Lord Asriel, draws her to the heart of a deadly struggle--a struggle born of Gobblers and stolen children, witch clans and armored bears. And as she hurtles toward dangers in the cold far North, young Lyra never suspects the shocking truth: she alone is destined to win, or to lose, this more-than-mortal battle."

Why Hello, Mr. Hitchcock!

My collegue, Monique, was sitting on her bed this morning and looked up at the coat rack on the wall and sent me this photo. Who was staring back at her but Mr. Hitchcock himself.
