O'Keefe explains why the Harry Potter books are so popular, and why William Nicholson is the first great fantasy writer to start publishing in the twenty-first century. Writing in an informal style, she introduces the reader to many wonderful books, and provides insights into plot, character, theme and texture. In sum, she presents original ideas about individual books, about types of books, and about the world of what Dr. Seuss called "outlandish tales."
