Harry Potter novel

Thousands of years ago, girls and boys would gather round the fire ready to lose themselves in a fantasy story world filled with epic songs of love lost, blood-curdling warfare, trials of bravery and courage and vengeful gods and goddesses. They would be both entertained and educated and would pass on what they heard from one generation to the next. 


Eventually, the oral epic tradition, home to Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey, gave way to written manuscripts, begun in Britain by the 11th century Anglo-Saxon poem Beowulf. Then came printed texts, widening the audience, and finally today’s e-books.



The presentation may have changed, but the fantasy epic still holds its appeal for young UK readers. It is a genre within which the imagination can truly run wild, taking readers to amazing places where anything can happen.

Children still delight in C S Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia, written between 1949 and 1954, and buy J K Rowling’s Harry Potter books in their millions. (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, sold 11 million copies in its first 24 hours across the UK and US.) Add to that the continued success of epic trilogies like J R R Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings and Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials and you have all the proof you need that fantasy fiction is likely to be around for thousands more years to come.
