GRAPHIC NOVELS: Stories To Change Your Life

A Review By: Philip Pullman

Author Philip Pullman is best known for his trilogy His Dark Materials, beginning with Northern Lights (The Golden Compass in the USA) in 1995, continuing with The Subtle Knife in 1997, and concluding with The Amber Spyglass in 2000. These books have been honoured by several prizes, including the Carnegie Medal, the Guardian Children’s Book Award, and (for The Amber Spyglass) the Whitbread Book of the Year Award - the first time in the history of that prize that it was given to a children’s book.

Thanks for having the publisher send me a copy of the Graphic Novels companion. I think it’s terrific. Everything that ought to be there is there, and you’ve dealt fully and interestingly with all the ones I know about, and pointed the way to several I don’t. I hope the book has a big success and becomes the standard work on the subject. Congratulations on a splendid book.
