The list author says: "These books in this list really aim for the young and young adult reader who love to read about fantasy and fairy tales. No matter how old you are, the books on this list are enchanting, engaging, and keep the reader wanting more. Right now, youth stay away from reading because it isn't fun like their video games and computers. However, I think it is important to turn them to books that can hold their interest and these books do just that."
"This isn't your typical fairy tale book. It's all the fairy tales that you know and love with a twist at the end along with a lot of crazy artwork. It's memorable and I'm sure both you and your kids will love it! No matter your age, you have to appreciate Smith's creativity and take on fairy tales."
"Just like the Stinky Cheese Man, this book gives the story of the three little pigs with a twist. Nobody ever really asked the wolf for his side of the story and it turns out that everything was just a big misunderstanding!"
"The Captain Underpants collection is a fun read for everyone involved. Who doesn't love reading about toilets and underwear and who in the world doesn't love saying poop? I don't care how old you are. It gets a laugh everytime!"
"Howl's Moving Castle is a great book for young adult children. It has wizards and witches and some romance sprinkled here and there. It keeps the reader engaged with lots of fantasy but can still appeal to an older audience."
"The Harry Potter collections is a great collection of books for young readers and adult readers. Even reading this book in classrooms as early as third and fourth grade would be an excellent choice. It proves to be challenging and engaging all at once. It truly is a magical series."
"The Abhorsen series is a series where there is a lot of magic and a lot of adventure. These books may require the reader to really enjoy reading seeing as each book is fairly long. However, don't let the length detour you! The adventurous story will keep you engaged from page to page."

"Once again this book is about romance and love. It is full of vampires and werewolves and of course the Volturi. Although it doesn't involve your typical magic, it is still a magical story that enchants and engages its readers."
"Vampirates is actually a series of books that is still ongoing. This story has a mixture of pirates and vampires just like the title emplies. Twins Connor and Grace get thrown into this wild adventure of pirates and vampires and are torn between both worlds. This series is a great read for those who love adventure, magic and a small amount of romance."
