Philip Pullman

Master of Fantasy

Series: Authors Teens Love

By Susan E. Reichard

The works of Philip Pullman, award-winning author of the HIS DARK MATERIALS trilogy, are enjoyed by readers of all ages. Some of the themes of his work include the conflict of good vs. evil, the end of innocence, and the beginning of wisdom. Perhaps more than anything else, however, his work is known for its depiction of the relationship between religion and science. Such depictions continue to fuel discussion among readers and inspire debate today.
