Feel free to post as much as you like.  Be sure to read others’ comments and respond to them.  Let’s get to it!

Fantasy often takes place in another land or another time.  This can let the author really get descriptive, which makes for some good reading.  What is described really well in your book?  If you don't have an example, maybe write a descriptive example of your own about something in your story. Please include the title and author of the book you’re reading in your post (some of us want to add to our reading list!) 

In my story, "The Goblin’s Puzzle" by Andrew S. Chilton, the goblin actually turns out to be a pretty good guy!  I was surprised.  The goblin can grant three wishes or vows, but the boy doesn’t quite know how to ask.  The goblin helps him.  An ogre is introduced to the story, and he is described SO well:  “He looked something like a man, but lumpy and misshapen, as if a child had made him out of clay...HIs mouth had a collection of teeth that looked as if they had been casually tossed in there” (70). I wonder if the ogre, who seems so brutal and mean, will turn out being helpful like the goblin?  I guess I’ll find out. 

What’s happening in your book?
