I misread your comments, now that I read them again... sorry about that. My computer's been acting up lately. *siigh*

Well, go look at some childrens' literature that was recently published. If it's fantasy, by the way, it usually doesn't count; just more people trying to capitilize off JK Rowling. There is a disturbing theme in these: most of them are below some of the IQ of some children today. This makes most books have kids go, "Oh. That was predictable," and go play a video game.

The HP books have wonderfully developed characters, plots, and their world is incredibly developed with alot of attention to detail and continuity in the books.

It should never be, say, something to be worshipped, but I myself would prefer they read this than a, say, book especially developed for kids. My definition of that is a book that is put forward by someone to keep them enertained so they're out of the parents' hair -- not truly interesting, just something to put in their hands and say "Read."
