To the writers of kids’ fantasy books (and grownup fantasy books, too, come to think of it)

The thing is, if I’m reading a fantasy book, I expect fantastical things to happen, so even though your protagonist doesn’t expect fantastical things to happen, pretty soon the character’s going to have to come to terms with their new reality–because if they don’t, I’m going to get really, really tired of hearing them talk about how weird! and strange! and unexpected! and abnormal! these things are that keep happening to them.
