One of the delights of discovering fiction for 7 to12 year olds, 6 years ago as an adult reader was discovering just how varied this genre is.
I passionately believe that every child can love fantasy. They just need: a) to be read some gateway fantasy reads b)help in finding fantasy stories that are just right for them right now
