  • The Secret Commonwealth: The Book of Dust Volume Two

    Philip Pullman

    Product Code: CAYAD
    Audio 12 years +
    It is twenty years since the events of La Belle Sauvage: The Book of Dust Volume One unfolded and saw the baby Lyra Belacqua begin her life-changing journey. It is seven years since readers left Lyra and the love of her young life, Will Parry, on a park bench in Oxford's Botanic Gardens at the end of the ground-breaking, bestselling His Dark Materialssequence. Now, in The Secret Commonwealth, we meet Lyra Silvertongue. And she is no longer a child . . . The second volume of Sir Philip Pullman's The Book of Dust sees Lyra, now twenty years old, and her daemon Pantalaimon, forced to navigate their relationship in a way they could never have imagined, and drawn into the complex and dangerous factions of a world that they had no idea existed. Pulled along on his own journey too is Malcolm; once a boy with a boat and a mission to save a baby from the flood, now a man with a strong sense of duty and a desire to do what is right. Theirs is a world at once familiar and extraordinary, and they must travel far beyond the edges of Oxford, across Europe and into Asia, in search for what is lost - a city haunted by daemons, a secret at the heart of a desert, and the mystery of the elusive Dust. The Secret Commonwealth is truly a book for our times; a powerful adventure and a thought-provoking look at what it is to understand yourself, to grow up and make sense of the world around you. This is storytelling at its very best from one of our greatest writers.

Audiobooks, sound books and the like are a great choice for children of a variety of reading levels, and lend themselves to all sorts of situations.

Wherever, whenever

One of the best reasons to pick a children's audiobook is that they're really versatile. The most obvious benefit of audio CDs for kids is their ability to get rid of boredom and are-we-there-yet's during long car journeys. A big, engrossing book can make the hours fly by! They're also good for popping on at bedtime for drifting off to sleep to, especially after a busy and tiring day at school.

Skill-boosting

Audio stories for kids will improve children's vocabularies and literacy skills – just because they're not reading doesn't mean the words, sentences and paragraphs aren't working their educational magic. That's ignoring all of the information that books convey to kids about the world too.

Browse our full range of children's books

We've got a wide selection of titles, meaning there's an audiobook for every child. And if your children love adding a soundtrack to their favourite stories, be sure to take a look at our children's sound books.
