Pullman's objections to Lewis (as quoted so far) seem to centre on the Narnia
books, whereas it is Lewis's *adult* fiction that his own work resembles most
glaringly in style and imagery. Has he ever mentioned Lewis in relation to
anything other than Narnia? As a number of people have pointed out, _His Dark
Materials_ isn't really written in the manner of a children's book, and
doesn't really strike one as an anti-Christian equivalent of Narnia, to be
read on the same level.
