Recipe For Successful Kiddies "cross-over" Fantasy

1. Take one or two youthful protagonists, not too young.
2. Add to bowl of imaginary setting.
3. Flavour with "real world" essence, to taste.
4. Drizzle over dystopia sauce. Be careful with this as it has a pungent flavour.
5. Add the source of conflict of your choice.
6. Mix up and beat the protagonists well.
7. Pop under a hot grill for a few minutes. Make sure the protagonists come out at the end triumpant and with a more mature outlook on life.
Note: some magic may be chopped up and sprinkled over, if liked.

I think all of the cross-over (appeal to adults and kids) children's fantasy fiction popular at the moment comforms to this formula. What do you think?

haha, yes i agree and i love the way you wrote that!
Also another side note, that the '
Youthful protagonists find love with each other or others'
for that is seemingly a part in the majority of cross-overs too

I used to read quite alot of these cross-over fantasy novels: Sabriel, Wind on Fire trillogy, Mortal Engines, Northern Lights etc, but I was never very keen on Harry Potter. I read the first three a long time ago, so I have forgotten what happened in them.

Does Harry Potter comform to this recipe?
