First Fantasy Chapter Books

These are fantasy book recommendations for children who are just getting old enough to listen to chapter books. They are books that my son and I enjoyed (or plan to enjoy soon), beginning when he was four. Most of them we listened to as audio books in the car; I have noted the few titles here that aren’t available.
