    My favourite fantasy books are the Gregor the Overlander series, because they are so well described. I feel like I am inside the book!
    I still believe that this should become the next big thing, and should be made into a movie. My little sister’s favourite fantasy books are Beast Quest, and every time she goes to the library, she gets loads out.

      If your sister comments too Tierney she could win the Chronicles of Avantia books which are written by the same person as the Beast Quest books 🙂

    My favourite fantasy book is The Hobbit by J R.R. Tolkien. I like it because there is always something exciting on every page. My favourite character is Gandalf, a very interesting wizard who seems to appear in the nick of time whenever there is trouble, and is famous for his brilliant fireworks. Girls and boys will love it equally. Rating 8.5 out of 10. Good for ages 9 to 14.

    My favourite books are the Beast Quest series. I don’t have a favourite character, because I like all of them so much. I rate it ten out of ten!
    I like it because when you read it you can see it in your head, so it’s
    really cool! I think that boys would like it more than girls.
