Best children's fantasy books for age 10+

Gregory Forsyth
The list author says: "This is my list of the best children's fantasy books I've read (aged 10+). I'm the author of 'The Gypsy Crown' and 'The Starthorn Tree' and I've read thousands and thousands of children's books - I've included a good mix of classic and contemporary books, and many of these writers have written many more wonderful books as well - hours and hours of joyous reading to come. Enjoy!"
