Fantasy VRS.Realism

Hi all! This week we’ve been comparing two types of fiction: Fantasy and Realistic Fiction. We found that a fantasy often contains both realistic events and those  which could never happen. Below you’ll see some of the books we read this week. Please leave a comment below, offering examples of both realism and fantasy from each story.

Today we’re going to talk a bit more about WHY authors write these types of fiction.  What is their PURPOSE? Is it to… Inform us? Entertain us? Persuade us? Click HERE for a review of AUTHOR’S PURPOSE.
