Philip Pullman, CBE

NOVELIST

Philip Pullman is the greatly acclaimed writer of the His Dark Materials trilogy. The first book in the trilogy, Northern Lights, won Pullman the Carnegie medal, and the third book, The Amber Spyglass, won both the Whitbread Prize for best children's book in 2001 and the Whitbread Book of the Year award in 2002. When Pullman was seven his father, a Royal Air Force pilot, died in a plane crash. His mother later re-married and moved to Austria. Pullman found solace in John Milton’s Paradise Lost, which provided a certain amount of inspiration for His Dark Materials. Pullman has published many other pieces including Fairy Tales from The Brothers Grim, The Butterfly Tattoo and The Firework-Maker’s Daughter.
