Do you ever feel like you want to escape into another world, slipping through an enchanted wardrobe and experiencing the breathtaking adventure beyond?  Fantasy books bring the imagination to life and allow the impossible to occur. The sheer joy of escaping reality and letting go of expectations makes this genre incredibly popular for all ages.   Fantasy is a fiction genre set in an imaginary universe, often but not always without any locations, events, or people from the real world.  Most fantasy uses magic or other supernatural elements as a main plot element, theme, or setting.   Magic and magical creatures are common in many of these imaginary worlds.
