My little daemon

I'm very excited to see the movie based on the books by Philip Pullman. I hope it lives up to the expectation. His Dark Materials series, The Golden Compass being the first (It's called Northern Lights in the UK), are really great reads. I think I would like to go back and re-read them, but the first book was a very emotional read for me and I remember one part very vividly. So it's a bit hard for me to settle down and read them again I think. But I will. I have plenty of time.

If you haven't read the books, everyone in Lyra's world (the main character) has a daemon which is sort of their self concious brought to reality and form in the shape of an animal. What do you think of my Daemon? Does it suit?

I really enjoyed Northern Lights, but the 2nd and especially the 3rd book were beyond weird!
I think Pullman went off on one slightly!

Confession time. I only managed to get halfway through the Amber Spyglass. I have to pick it up again. I know, bad librarian...bad librarian.
