    A breathtaking epic, the award-winning His Dark Materials trilogy spans a multitude of worlds. The opening instalment Northern Lights is set in a parallel world like, yet very unlike, our own. Twelve-year-old Lyra, whose daemon Pantalaimon is part of her very self, is growing up in an ancient, ritual-haunted Oxford. She becomes involved in a quest to find her father and rescue her friend Roger from evil kidnappers, aided by armoured bears, Gyptians and a witch-queen. The second instalment, The Subtle Knife, introduces us to Will Parry - a young boy with a dangerous mission to fulfil. When he and Lyra cross paths, they decide to help each other, but the world of Cittagazze is a strange and unsettling place, where deadly soul-eating Spectres roam...The concluding instalment, The Amber Spyglass, brings the saga to a thrilling close. Lyra and Will are aided by friends old and new as they continue their perilous journey. As childhood slips away, they face further dangers - including a terrifying voyage to the world of the dead. Mixing science, theology and magic to fantastic and exciting effect, Pullman's gripping trilogy was an international bestseller, and these thrilling full-cast dramatisations bring Philip Pullman's masterpiece to vivid life. 6 CDs. 7 hrs 30 mins.

    In a follow-up to the cherished original "Tale of Peter Rabbit" by Beatrix Potter, "The Further Tale of Peter Rabbit" sees Peter on the quest for adventure. Sneaking into Mr McGregor's garden to steal a lettuce, the naughty little rabbit finds himself in a picnic basket heading all the way to Scotland, where he meets the large but kindly Finlay McBurney, a distant cousin. Far away from his cousin, Benjamin Bunny, and the Lake District setting of Beatrix Potter's classic tale, Peter Rabbit gets all the adventure he was looking for as he encounters a giant radish and even takes part in the Highland Games. Emma Thompson, Oscar-winning actress and screen writer ("Sense and Sensibility" and "Nanny McPhee"), is a long time admirer of Beatrix Potter's tales. She has a talent for creating engaging narratives with a dry humour similar to Potter's own and is the perfect choice of author for this new "Peter Rabbit" tale. Emma was inspired to set the tale in Scotland by her knowledge of Beatrix's childhood holidays there. Accompanied by a story CD, narrated by Emma herself, this wonderfully whimsical tale is perfect for "Peter Rabbit" fans old and new.
