Why is it that so many kids’ fantasy adventure books can be boiled down to:
“Children find a magical talisman that transports them to a wondrous world where they must fulfill their destiny or be trapped for ever.”
I swear I’ve read this book about a zillion times for work, and today was no exception. Some, like today, are better written than others but it makes me wonder if we’ve run out of stories with which to delight and dazzle children. Is it just me, or have children’s books become simply products?
