Mr B's review

Shhh, we have a secret…oh bother, so everyone knows, but we couldn’t NOT shout about it! Delving into this was both thrilling and nostalgic, vividly transporting me back to when Lyra’s story had first entranced me, many moons ago. Musty Oxford rooms, shape-shifting daemons, strangers in the shadows and dark forces at work. Malcolm, young innkeeper’s son, witnesses a peculiar event from his boat, a baby is smuggled into a convent and the rain is coming. A lot of rain.   

Description

Eleven-year-old Malcolm Polstead and his daemon, Asta, live with his parents at the Trout Inn near Oxford. Across the River Thames (which Malcolm navigates often using his beloved canoe, a boat by the name of La Belle Sauvage) is the Godstow Priory where the nuns live. Malcolm learns they have a guest with them; a baby by the name of Lyra Belacqua . . .
