- Nightbird by Alice Hoffman – A magical middle grade novel told from the perspective of 12 year old Twig. A curse has been placed on Twig’s family generations ago by the ancestor (a witch) of the family who has just moved in next door. My Review.
- The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum – A classic story where Dorothy is transported by a tornado to a magical land. She must find the wonderful wizard to help her return home to Kansas, but the Wicked Witch of the West has other plans for Dorothy.
- The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis – Another classic where four children join forces with a lion and other magical creatures to defeat a wicked witch.
- Harry Potter by J. K. Rowling – In this series, Harry Potter and other wizarding children are sent to Hogwarts for school and pursue many exciting and often dangerous adventures.
- Sorcerer to the Crown by Zen Cho – This book features English magicians and a mysteriously disappearing source of magic, which has been attributed at least partially to fairies. The women with magical powers are being taught to suppress them, at least until Zacharias, the new Sorcerer Royal, discovers that this is happening. My Review.
