Title: His Dark Materials: Book 1 Northern Lights
Author: Philip Pullman
Winning Year: 1995

When Lyra\'s friend Roger disappears, she and her daemon, Pantalaimon, are determined to find him. The ensuing quest leads them to the bleak splendour of the North, where armoured bears rule the ice, witch-queens fly through the frozen skies and a team of scientists are conducting experiments too horrible to speak about. Lyra overcomes these strange terrors, only to find something yet more perilous waiting for her - something with consequences which may even reach beyond the Northern Lights.
