These stories never leave us and even though we may move on from fairytales, there are still magical stories out there for the child inside the adult. Harry Potter, because of its popularity, is a great example of a story written first for children that has been enjoyed by so many generations. Let's face it, there aren't be any people who don't know who Harry Potter is.
New worlds formed around lovable and imaginative characters give us the freedom to escape from the normality of life, yet until another comes along, it's hard to believe anything could be as memorable. Until it does.
My latest gem, is The Other Side of Eve, by Paul Ikin.
Alice fell through the rabbit hole; Dorothy got swept away by a cyclone. Both adventurous tales toy with idea of dreams; imagination. For Eve, her imagination takes over her reality as a coping mechanism.
