The Golden Compass - The Graphic Novel by Phillip Pullman
The book I read is called The Golden Compass - The Graphic Novel by Phillip Pullman.
The Golden Compass takes you to a fantastic world. It is totally immersing and full of surprises. The novel tells the story of Lyra Belacqua, a curious and brave girl who, along with her trusty daemon Pantalaimon is forced on an eventful and dangerous journey in which her whole world is turned around.
What I found great about this graphic novel is that it had beautiful art work in it from the French artist Clement Oubrerie. His illustrations for this novel won an award at the International Comics Festival in France.
What I really loved about this book was that everyone had a companion animal that they could talk with. The realistic dialogue was supported by dramatic illustrations which helped me to better imagine the interesting things that make up Lyra's unique world.
