"The 1996 novel, published for children but widely praised by grown-ups, is set in a British world where everyone has a personal 'daemon,' the manifestation of his or her soul in animal form ... Pullman ... has seen an early cut of the film without its computer-generated effects and calls it 'rich, strange and wonderful.'"
Review, Entertainment Weekly (circ: 1, 830, 769), November 9, 2007:
"The polar bear warriors in THE GOLDEN COMPASS ... are just part of the vast fantastical metaverse explored by young Lyra Belacqua in a $150 million adaptation of the first book in Philip Pullman's His Dark Materialstrilogy."
