Harry Potter is to do battle with a 15-year-old autistic detective and the girl who killed God.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, the latest in JK Rowling's series, is among the 39 nominees for the 2004 Carnegie medal for children's literature. Others include the bestselling crossover novel, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, by Mark Haddon, which recounts an autistic boy's attempts to find out who killed his neighbour's dog, and Lyra's Oxford, companion to Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy. A shortlist will be published on April 30, and the winners announced at a ceremony in July.
