I love this book it is possibly the best book I've ever read. my favourite Character is serafina Pekkala as she helps Lyra when she needs it most.
It's about a girl who has spent her life at Jordan college and has suddenly found herself knowing who her father is and with an alethiometer or Golden compass. She has to find her friend (kidnapped by the Gobblers) in the freezing North and bring him home but ends up doing way more than she bargained for.
This book is about Lyra, and her daemon, Pantalaimon who live wild in Jordan Collage.Her destiny takes her on a journey to the north, in search of a kidnapped friend. This book is breath taking, and extremely hard to put down. I would recommend it to 11-14 year olds.
First, take a blank book. Put in characters Lyra, Roger, Lord Asriel, Mrs Coulter, Tony Makarios and a bunch of people called The Gyptians. Add in witch-clan queen Serafina Pekkala, aeronaut Lee Scoresby and The Ice Bears in Svalbard. And what have you got? Philip Pullman's Northern Lights! 11-year old Lyra
(and all the characters-the adults' don't change)has a shapeshifting creature called a daemon.
