If you are a parent, you have probably had to consider, or will have to consider, whether your child should read Pilgrim’s Progress, the Chronicles of Narnia, the Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter books, or for that matter any fantasy books. All of these are considered fantasy literature by the author.
