Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Yes! I read my daughters all of the above (I would add Madeleine L'Engle's books : A wrinkle in time etc, CS Lewis with added nuclear physics and Episcopalean theology)
None of them did any harm, but Pullman rules them all.

(Oh dear, I just learned they did a film version of Wrinkle. Will consult Younger Daughter as to whether we should see it. Could it be worse than Golden Compass?)

The Golden Compass

A Wrinkle in Time.

She believed in nothing; only her skepticism kept her from being an atheist. -- Jean-Paul Sartre

Whoa.

Compass was a bad film in that they "did the book" to within an inch of its life, and was so superficial that the only character with any emotional depth was the CGI polar bear.

Wrinkle is a whole nother dimension of bad, it would seem (appropriately) - they seem to have lost the plot entirely.
