This is the mesmerising story of the very first meeting of those two legends and friends, Lee Scoresby, the Texan balloonist, and Iorek Byrnison, the armoured bear. When Lee and his daemon, Hester, land in the Arctic town of Novy Odense, they quickly become embroiled in an out-and-out political brawl. So when Iorek offers to help, Lee is only too happy to accept. Together they take on a slippery politician, his monstrous gas-powered gun and a murderous gunfighter. And so begins a friendship that will continue throughout their lives.This audio edition is performed by Philip Pullman with a full cast and produced by Garrick Hagan.

Awesome short

Once Upon a Time in the North is an awesome short about Lee Scoresby's visit to a small town in the Arctic, where he meets Iorek Byrnison for the first time. A fun listen which is written and narrated by Philip Pullman and includes a full cast of actors voicing the characters. I absolutely loved it. The story compliments His Dark Materials trilogy brilliantly.
