This is another spin off story from the His Dark Materials universe, but I wouldn't even call this a novella, it's really more of a scene where Lyra and Pantalaimon travel to see Dr Lanselius to talk about witches and humans separating from their daemons. Lots of illustrations (not as good as in the other books in my view) and plenty of spaces. Does feel like a bit of a rip off. ( )

An all-too-brief return to the lovely feeling His Dark Materials used to give me. But I thought the green book was supposed to be Will's? ( )

A very short story featuring Lyra, Pan, and Dr. Lanselius. This piece provides an interesting perspective on the new trilogy Pullman's writing now. Nicely illustrated by Tom Duxbury. ( )

The third of these short story additions to the His Dark Materials world. This one focuses on Daemons and separation. ( )

I truly enjoy the writing style of Philip Pullman he has a great way of creating a believable but still fantastical world and populating it with interesting and intriguing characters. I do not enjoy the ending to this series at all but I can still enjoy the series as a whole even if the ending deeply irks me. ( )
