These are series of fantasy stories, anything having to do with magic, fairy tales, or similar subjects.  I also include stories with mythological creatures, talking animals (or animals that behave like humans), and other things that don’t exist.  There aren’t many here yet, but there will be more later.

For stories that have a kind of fantasy or fairy-tale tone but don’t feature actual magic, see my list of Pseudo-Fantasy books under Book Lists.

Hawthorn Bay Trilogy

This is a very loose trilogy that takes place mainly in Canada, at a place called Hawthorn Bay on Lake Ontario, at various periods in history.  It’s partly an historical series and partly fantasy because some of it involves fantasy elements like ESP and time travel.  By Janet Lunn.

Stardust Classics

This is actually a collection of fantasy series about different girls: the princess of a fairy-tale kingdom, a fairy, and a girl who travels through time with her aunt.  The format is similar to the American Girls history series, and there were dolls associated with it.  By various authors.

Tales of Magic

Various groups of children go on magical adventures.  A somewhat loose series that follows different sets of characters, although some of the events are related.  By Edward Eager.
