“Northern Lights” by Philip Pullman

I really love that there are these cute little illustrations at the start of each chapter in “Northern Lights” by Philip Pullman, so I’ve picked these for today’s challenge task! I love that each one relates in some way to the content of the chapter: in the case of the one picture above, it’s one of the armoured bears introduced to Lyra on her travels to the north. They are so simple but beautiful, like little ink stamps almost.

Lyra meets the armoured bear in “Northern Lights” by Philip Pullman

I choose Lyra Belacqua from the “His Dark Materials” trilogy by Philip Pullman because she makes mistakes and tries to rectify them, although she isn’t always aware of what she is doing or the effect she has on people. She follows her heart but ultimately does what’s right. I love reading about her adventures, and the trilogy made me think seriously about the issues raised that she has to deal with.
