A story in the Arctic from the world of His Dark Materials and The Book of Dust by master storyteller, Philip Pullman.



‘Lyra Silvertongue, you’re very welcome . . . Yes, I know your new name. Serafina Pekkala told me everything about your exploits’


Lyra and her daemon Pantalaimon have left the events of His Dark Materials far behind. 

In this snapshot of their forever-changed lives they return to the North to visit an old friend,

where we will learn that things are not exactly as they seem . . .


Illustrated throughout by Tom Duxbury, the perfect re-entry for fans of His Dark Materials

and a wonderful companion to The Book of Dust, 

Serpentine is a brand-new special read for Pullman fans old and new.

A limited no. of signed copies will be available soon - register your interest by emailing us: info@top-hatandtales.co.uk
