A very sumptuous and lovingly crafted but tantalizingly brief book , Lyra's Oxford begins when Lyra and Pantalaimon spot a witch's daemon called Ragi being pursued over the rooftops of Oxford by a frenzied pack of birds. The daemon heads straight for Lyra (the creature was given Lyras name as somebody who might help) and is given shelter. Together Lyra and Pan try to guide the daemon to the home of Sebastian Makepeacean alchemist living in a part of Oxford known as Jericho--but it is a journey fraught with more danger than they had at first anticipated. (Age 10 and over) --John McLay --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Good quality hardcover - exquisite map inside. It is a small book - more like a companion story supporting the His Dark Materials series. Read morePublished 7 days ago by Mother Bee

A very short short story. Nice to see Lyra again but ... WTF? I paid for a few pages of novelist's notes?? Is this some kind of fan fic?
