The Book of Dust by Phillip Pullman

The Book of Dust – The new book by Phillip Pullman, author of His Dark Materials, releases tomorrow! SO exciting as he hasn’t published in 10 years.

The Book of Dust: La Belle Sauvage is a part of the Book of Dust collection.

Renowned storyteller Philip Pullman returns to the parallel world of Lyra Belacqua and His Dark Materials for a thrilling and epic adventure in which daemons, alethiometers, and the Magisterium all play a part.

 The Book of Dust will be a work in three parts, like His Dark Materials (The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife, The Amber Spyglass). The book is set ten years before The Golden Compass and centers on the much-loved character Lyra and her daemon Pantalaimon.

Get Your Copy Here:

Philip Pullman offers these tantalizing details: “I’ve always wanted to tell the story of how Lyra came to be living at Jordan College, and in thinking about it, I discovered a long story that began when she was a baby and will end when she’s grown up. This volume and the next will cover two parts of Lyra’s life: starting at the beginning of her story and returning to her twenty years later. As for the third and final part, my lips are sealed.

“So, second: is it a prequel? Is it a sequel? It’s neither. In fact, The Book of Dust is… an ‘equel.’ It doesn’t stand before or after His Dark Materials, but beside it. It’s a different story, but there are settings that readers of His Dark Materials will recognize, and characters they’ve met before. Also, of course, there are some characters who are new to us, including an ordinary boy (a boy we have glimpsed in an earlier part of Lyra’s story, if we were paying attention) who, with Lyra, is caught up in a terrifying adventure that takes him into a new world.

“Third: why return to Lyra’s world? Dust. Questions about that mysterious and troubling substance were already causing strife ten years before His Dark Materials, and at the center of The Book of Dust is the struggle between a despotic and totalitarian organization, which wants to stifle speculation and inquiry, and those who believe thought and speech should be free. The idea of Dust suffused His Dark Materials. Little by little through that story the idea of what Dust was became clearer and clearer, but I always wanted to return to it and discover more.”

Order Today and Have It In 2 Days

The books of the His Dark Materials trilogy were showered with praise, and the Cincinnati Enquirer proclaimed, “Pullman has created the last great fantasy masterpiece of the twentieth century.” With The Book of Dust, Philip Pullman embarks on an equally grand adventure, sure to be hailed as the first great fantasy masterpiece of the twenty-first century.

First Contacted By Chris Horne

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Conversation with Chris Horne teacher from Little Rock, Arkansas

I was contacted by Chris Horne, Learning Style Specialist, teacher of this third grade class on March 5, 2008. Over the next couple of days. Our conversations went like this…

Chris Wrote:

Dear Lady Ellen,

I am a school teacher from Little Rock, Arkansas. I am currently teaching third grade Gifted and Talented along with other classes. I have 31 students with over 20 of them reading the Harry Potter series and 10 of them who have finished it as so have I.

We have been looking for what to read next. I loved the series and how it opened up a lot of doors to discuss reading with my students. Especially those who usually do not care to read. As I mentioned I am looking for something to read with them next and I ran across your new series.

However I am having trouble locating a copy of it. I have looked at our local bookstores and online. Can you please help me get hold of a copy? After reading your reviews on your web page and your preview I think this will be the series to carry on our love for reading with.

Thanks,
Chris Horne
Learning Style Specialist

 

Lady Ellen Wrote:

Dear Chris:

At this point, I’ve only released it as an eBook from my site.

It’s not in hard copy yet.

But because of your reasons…and I’m a HUGE supporter of children reading..(my own read at 3 and 4 years old) I’m attaching a copy which you are most welcome to print out and read to your class. I only ask, of course that it is copied for your class only.

Thank you so much for contacting me…I hope you and your class enjoy Persephane and her crew.

You have my permission to copy this 31 times. Please feel free to email me anytime with questions and clarifications.

Warmly,
Lady Ellen

Chris Wrote:

Thank you so much for your generosity. This means a lot to our class. I told the kids today and they were so excited.

I hope everything goes well with your series and I will stay in contact regarding the book.

I read the first 2 chapters last night and was very impressed. Myself being a big Harry Potter fan I was hoping but not getting my hopes up to big. I truly feel that this will be the next series to read.

Great Job.

Lady Ellen Wrote:

You’re ever so welcome for the books. I’m tickled that the kids are excited to read it!

Also, thank you for the kind words about the chapters…thrilled that a true Potter fan liked them. I’ve had a blast writing this..now in the thick of book two. What I would just love is if you could give the kids my email and they could write to me with their thoughts and comments.

Enjoy the read! Feel free to write at any time. Your bunch is my first classroom to study/read the book, so you’ll always have a historic place in my heart.

Chris Wrote:

I have finished the first 15 chapters now and I have to say they are great. They keep your interest as well as keep you wondering what will come next.

This week I will introduce the first 4 chapters to all my students. They are split over the next 4 days. They will correspond each day this week. I will then give them the opportunity to continue reading. I guarantee several will do so.

They will then begin corresponding and asking questions on a weekly basis. They will type the questions and comments I will send them on Fridays. This way you will know when they are coming. If one has a serious question they need answering right away they can send it early. Once again great job and thanks for this opportunity.

Lady Ellen:

Delighted you have enjoyed the first 15 chapters…it actually gets more exciting…

I’m practically always online…writing, ( I’m in the Eastern time zone, usually from 7:00 am to about 9 – 10:00 pm daily) so will respond to your students as soon as they send an email..and of course, if they wish to write earlier than Fridays, no problem.

Looking forward to dialoguing with you and your bunch!

First Class To Read Persephane Pendrake

 

Carver students get first peek at new novel…

 

(Normally Persy’s fans are from about 12 to 13 years old..and up..right up to over 80! This was an advanced Grade Three class who read the first book as a class assignment. You can go to the link to their comments at the bottom of this page..)

 

 

 

Submitted by Chris Horne, Carver Magnet GT Specialist:

The students in the third grade Gifted & Talented class at Carver Magnet Elementary are like so many children worldwide — obsessed with the world of Harry Potter. They would discuss the books and their characters any time they had a free minute and read the books like crazy. So, as their teacher, I read the Harry Potter series over Christmas vacation. Then we hit a stumbling block: What to read next! We looked at several Harry Potter web sites and forums to get an idea. Then we found a new series that was just beginning, called The Persephane Pendrake Chronicles by Lady Ellen. I tried to locate a copy of the first book, Persephane Pendrake and the Cimaruta, in print. We didn’t realize that it had not been published yet.

When looking all over Lady Ellen’s website with no luck in finding where to purchase the book, I took a chance and clicked the link to contact the author. I explained about our class and that we were looking for something to read after the Harry Potter series and asked where to get a copy of the book. To my surprise I heard back from her that very night. She told me the book was not out in book form but was only available on e-books. She did send my class a copy of her finished work. The students were very excited about the chance to read a book that was not yet available for others to read.

 

That would have been enough for us, but it got even better. Lady Ellen volunteered to correspond with the students as they read the book. We email her nearly every day with our questions from the book, comments, or even questions about how to be a writer. Within 30 minutes each child receives a personalized response to their questions or comments. The students have an inside look into the book that nobody else ever has had and have learned so much from her. Now the book has been picked up for publishing and should be released in late May. She has already told us that each student will be receiving a free copy of the book for their own personal library. As any new author she is starting to get even more attention now and has asked to use some of our questions and responses on her own personal website. When children around the world become entranced by this first book of the series, they will see that Carver Magnet students were the first to read the book.

Read about how Chris Horne contacted me to see if his kids could read Persephane.
