5 What happens to you as you read?

To begin to explore this question we’re now asking you to read the following extract from the book The Subtle Knife, written by Philip Pullman and published in 1997. You may have read the book previously or have seen a screen adaptation, or it may be unfamiliar to you. For the purposes of this activity, whether or not you know the book doesn’t matter – just enjoy the reading.
