He is also recipient of the prestigious Astrid Lindgren Award. Without any doubt, Pullman is the greatest children fiction writer of our time far surpassing the writing skills of J. His Dark Materials appeals to children and adults alike, whilst touching on serious subjects such as organised religion, reaching sexual maturity, philosophy and the latest scientific discoveries. Northern Lights was adapted as a Hollywood movie (as The Golden Compass) starring Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig which, however, was mediocre at best.
Luckily the BBC is in the process of adapting the entire trilogy as a TV-series with Pullman overseeing the project. Pullman will publish The Book of Dust trilogy from October 2017 onwards which will continue the Lyra Belacqua adventure.
