I can recommend the following fantasy books: Magyk by Angie Sage, or the Enchanted Forest Chronicles (4 books) by Patricia Wrede.
I generally love children's books - Harry Potter and all that lot, you know. I expected another delightful fairy-tale-ish story suitable for both adults and children. However, the writing style was very plain and simple with a small vocabulary, and each book read like one short chapter of a longer book. I never forgot that I was reading a book made for children. Also, the main characters were a little bit irritating with all of their bickering - constantly telling each other to shut up. I suppose that is how it really is with siblings, but I didn't enjoy reading their arguments much. It had a nice plot, but again, very simple.
That was for all you grown-ups looking for a fresh read.
For kids, I expect this book would be marvelous. The illustrations are very good and plentiful, and the writing style is easy to understand and follow - just right for kids reading on their own. The fairy-tale creatures introduced are actual creatures they will have heard of (elves, trolls, hobgoblins), but with their own personalities for the story. The plot is original and complete; all the loose ends get tied up. I know I would have loved it when I was seven or so.
Buy it for all your young relatives.
THE SEEING STONE: BOOK 2 - When Simon Grace's cat disappears, Jared simply thinks that the cat has wandered off on an excursion, and refuses to help Simon locate the missing animal. But when Jared discovers an old seeing glass - monocle - that gives him the ability to see strange and magical creatures around him, he realizes that Arthur Spiderwick's Field Guide was absolutely right, and soon sees something amazing: Simon being pulled into the forest by a group of goblins. Now it's up to Jared and his older sister, Mallory, to make their way through the creepy forest, encountering goblins, an injured griffin, a terrifying troll, and a baby-toothed hobgoblin with a very interesting way of giving humans the "sight," in an attempt to save their kidnapped brother, before it's too late.Read more ›
Characters remain constant throughout all five books, and the storyline is easy to follow.
