THE Matcham family were among delighted fans who met city novelist Philip Pullman in Oxford.

The His Dark Materials author met fans at Blackwell’s in Broad Street on Saturday to promote his latest tome, Grimm Tales.

Helen Matcham, 41, from Milton Keynes, who is pictured attending the book signing above, with her children Emma, 15, Becky 11 and James, eight, said: “My husband is a book collector so they are surrounded by books.

“They like his adventure stories – they are other-wordly.”

Mr Pullman was due to begin the signing at 3pm, but arrived at 4.20pm.

He told the Oxford Mail he was late because he has been ill and said: “I managed to get there in the end. It was very good.”
