This short book was an interesting side story to the Golden Compass series. But I found the book a bit disappointing. I enjoyed it but Pullman set high standards with his other books and this one did not quite measure up. If you enjoyed the others, you will enjoy this as well. Recommended for Pullman and Golden Compass fans.

Just Par. Not great, but not below his other work by any means.

It was a good story, I was expecting more than 30 pages though (most of which were illustrations). It made me want more, but the fairly inconsequential story, the length, and the price make the nook download somewhat of a disappointment. The hard copy would have been nice for the extras and the illustrations and such, but since booksellers don't carry much niche anymore (unless it's vampire stuff) this was nowhere around me. Not a bad story, but you'll be happier with the physical copy.

    What a waste

    Story is like 10-20 pages long with a bunch of random pictures that are not related to the book at all. Does not connect to the past books at all... it's basically one short little adventure that is not much of an adventure and doesnt really tie together. What an absolute waste of money. Very dissapointed in Pullman.
