    Philip Pullman Audio Collection - 7 MP3 CDs (Audio)

    Philip Pullman

    (5) Hand-picked favourites
    Philip Pullman's books tackle important, controversial and difficult subjects with style, wisdom and authority. The His Dark Materials trilogy is often heralded as a modern masterpiece and it's featured on this unabridged audio collection across three CDs. There are also four CDs featuring the unabridged books from the Sally Lockhart Quartet.

    The monumental His Dark Materials books introduce Lyra, an orphan who lives in a parallel universe where science, theology and magic are entwined. As she embarks on a search for a sinister plot that involves stolen children, she soon finds herself on a quest to understand a mysterious phenomenon called Dust... Now is the perfect time to listen to these thought-provoking and captivating stories before the BBC adaptation starring Dafne Keen, Ruth Wilson, James McAvoy, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Clarke Peters arrives on our screens later this year.

    The Sally Lockhart Quartet opens with The Ruby in the Smoke, a book that finds Sally receiving an anonymous letter shortly after the death of her father at sea; the dire warning it contains makes a man die of fear at her feet... Sally decides to find out the truth about her father's death and finds herself plunged into a terrifying mystery in the heart of Victorian London - and it all seems to revolve around a deadly blood-soaked jewel.

    The His Dark Materials audiobooks are read by Philip Pullman and a full cast, while the Sally Lockhart Quartet is read by Anton Lesser.

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.
