    In Mio My Son and The Brothers Lionhearts, Astrid Lindgren broke the rules of the fantasy genre, especially in the third phase of the heroic journey when Mio and Blazic, M. (2009). Astrid Lindgren – Breaking the magic code and establishing a new one - Soul Journey. AILIJ (Anuario de Investigación en Literatura Infantil y juvenil) 7 (2), 29-37. ISSN 1578-6072. (Recibido 28 November 2008/ Received 28 November 2009) (Aceptado 25 Junio 2009/ Accepted 25 June 2009) Milena Mileva Blazic -30- AILIJ, Nº7 (2), 2009 the brothers – Jonathan and Karl did not return to the real chronotope (real time and place). Instead, they remained in the fantasy chronotope (fantasy time and place). With this rupture of the traditional fantasy code, Lindgren created a new modern pattern in the fantasy genre in Mio My Son: home (Thirteen North Street in Stockholm) – away (Farawayland) – far away (The land on the other side or Outer Land) and in The Brothers Lionheart: home (2nd floor at Fackelrosen building), away (jump out to fantasy 1 Nangiylima) and far away (jump out to fantasy 2 Nangilima). This rupture of the traditional fantasy code grew out of the modern concept of child and childhood, which rejected the traditional romantization of child and childhood in children’s literature.
