- ^ Northern Lights (Scholastic UK, 1995) by Philip Pullman had been published in the U.S. as The Golden Compass (Knopf, 1996), so only one Northern Light(s) title was used on each continent. • Both books won the annual British Carnegie Medal, which opened before 2003 to American authors who co-publish in the U.K., and both were named one of the top ten Medal-winning books for the 70th anniversary. Northern Lights by Pullman won the public vote from that shortlist and was thus celebrated as the "Carnegie of Carnegies".
