If you liked The Golden Compass...

We're delighted you're using the Book Match service and, like you, I enjoyed The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman.
Did you know it's the first in Pullman's trilogy, His Dark Materials?  The other two titles are The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass.  Meanwhile, here are three other titles I'd like to recommend.

King of Shadows by Susan Cooper
While in London to perform with a theatre group, Nat suddenly finds
himself transported back to 1599 and performing under the direction of Shakespeare himself.

Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer
Twelve-year-old Artemis Fowl is the most ingenious criminal mastermind in history. With two trusty sidekicks in tow, he hatches a cunning plot to divest the fairyfolk of their pot of gold. Of course, he isn't foolish enough to believe in all that "gold at the end of the rainbow" nonsense. Rather, he knows that the only way to separate the little people from their stash is to kidnap one of them and wait for the ransom to arrive. This is also part of a trilogy.

The Dragon of Doom by Bruce Coville.
Life in the village of Pigbone is boring until an aspiring magician and his talking toad come to town and ask Edward to help them slay the Dragon of Doom.

You can place a hold on any of titles by going to our library catalog:
