List: High Fantasy

These are stories that would be considered high fantasy, meaning they are set in a medieval or fantasy world and contain some combination of Tolkienesque elements (knights, dragons, elves, etc). This list is specifically made for kids looking for Dungeons and Dragons like stories. There are novels, series books and picture books. Links of titles go to the page for the book on Amazon.com.
