A fantasy cannot happen in the real world.
Modern fantasies are written by known authors.

Fantasies do contain truths that help the reader to understand today's world! Lloyd Alexander: The Book of Three
Kate DiCamillo: The Tale of Despereaux
Nancy Farmer: The House of the Scorpion
Lois Lowry: The Giver Series
David Almond: Skellig
Phillip Pullman: His Dark Materials Trilogy
J.K. Rowling: The Harry Potter Series Types of Modern Fantasy Unusual Characters and Strange Situations: "Some authors approach fantasy through reality but take it beyond reality to the ridiculous or exaggerated."(p. 137) (ex. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carrol)
Worlds of Little People: Stories about worlds inhabited by little people who live in our world or a world all their own. (ex. The Dark Ground by Gillian Cross)
Supernatural Events and Mystery Fantasy: These stories contain ghosts, witches, and vampires Oh My! (ex. The Ghost of Fossil Glen by Cynthia DeFellice)
Magical Realism:This type mixes realism and fantasy together in such a way that it leaves the reader wondering what is real and what is fantasy. (ex. The Fire Eater by David Almond) Modern Folktales: Similar to traditional literature with the exception that they have a known author and are not from the cultural heritage of a people. (ex Goose Girl by Shannon Hale)
Fractured Folktales: A new perspective on a traditional folktale. (ex. Jon Scieszak's The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs by A. Wolf)

Science Fiction: Is a story that illustrates something that could happen based on real scientific facts and principles. (ex. Double Identity by Margaret Peterson Haddix)
Science Fantasy: Is similar to science fiction, but the scientific explanation is not always plausible. (ex. Earthborn by Sylvia Waugh) Genre Appeal This genre will appeal to children that have an active imagination and are willing to challenge the boundaries of reality!
