Children Ages 10+ • 48 min. • Unabridged • © 2003

In "Lyra and the Birds," Lyra and her daemon, Pantalaimon, are swept up in an adventure that takes them from the rooftops of Jordan College to the streets of Oxford. The short story is set sometime after the events of THE AMBER SPYGLASS. Jo Wyatt and Richard Pearce are back as Lyra and Pan, as is narrator Pullman, but otherwise the cast is comparatively small. The CD package includes a map of Lyra's Oxford, as well as "souvenirs" such as a postcard and cruise line brochure, items that, as Pullman's introduction says, "might be connected with the story, or they might not . . . It's not easy to tell." LYRA'S OXFORD is essential listening for His Dark Materials fans, but be warned--it will only leave you wanting more.
