There’s a reason some of the most popular children’s books of all-time are fantasy books – Harry Potter, Twilight, The Hunger Games, The Hobbit – escaping to another world where magic is real and mythical creatures roam the streets is exactly what books are for.
Finding the right book for your child’s age or reading level is the hard part. That’s why we’ve put together a list of some of our favourite fantasy books for kids and teens, by reading age. This genre is huge for older kids with tons of middle grade fantasy adventure books to choose from: we have included a mix of classics and new fantasy books to keep even the most voracious reader’s interest.
Children’s fantasy books don’t all have to be books about wizards either, there are books about magic, dragons, quests, monsters, witches, vampires and more!
The best fantasy stories for kids allow us to suspend reality an let our imaginations run wild.
If you can’t get enough, we have even more fantasy books for children on our list of favourite Dragon Books here too!
