Has anyone read "Lyra's Oxford" or "Once upon a time in the north"?

If so, what did you think of them?

I liked them both. I wish they were a bit longer, but they were fun to read. And they come with a bunch of extra fun stuff like a board game and a map too.

Lyra's Oxford takes place 2 years after the amber spyglass and Lyra is up on the roof when some witch's dæmon comes being chased by birds and wants to get some potion for her witch. so she goes and tries to help and stuff. really short. 48 pages.

Once upon a time in the north is about when Lee Scorseby and Iorek Byrnison first meet and what they did together in this northern dock town.

Yes we should! Lyra is amazingness. I may read the books again soon. Dunno yet. I just got a bunch of other books. been reading ALOT of George Orwell. just got dante's inferno and divine comedy and some other books.. mostly by Orwell. I want The Book of Dust to come out! It's 'spose to be really big. Not sure when it'll come out though. Pullman's been working on it for awhile.
