About the Author

J.K. Rowling is best known as the author of the seven Harry Potter books, which were first published between 1997 and 2007. The enduringly popular adventures of Harry, Ron, and Hermione have sold over 500 million copies, been translated into over 80 languages, and made into eight blockbuster films, the last of which was released in 2011. Alongside the Harry Potter series, she also wrote three short companion volumes — Quidditch Through the Ages, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and The Tales of Beedle the Bard — which were published in aid of Comic Relief and Lumos. In 2016, J.K. Rowling collaborated with playwright Jack Thorne and director John Tiffany to resume Harry’s story in a stage play, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, which opened first in London, and is now playing on Broadway and in Melbourne, Australia. In the same year, she made her debut as a screenwriter with the film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which was inspired by the original companion volume and features magizoologist Newt Scamander. Her second screenplay, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, was released in cinemas in 2018. J.K. Rowling has also written a stand-alone novel for adults, The Casual Vacancy, and, under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith, is the author of the Strike crime series. She lives in Scotland with her family, and is at her happiest alone in a room, making things up.

I'm 11 and go these for Christmas. I've already read all the Harry Potter books and seen all the movies. I wanted these books because I wanted to learn more about wizarding. These books are very detailed and although I haven't finished all of them yet I'm enjoying them. Because they aren't stories, they aren't books that you sit down and read all the way through. You are more likely to read through them a chapter at a time. These are books that would be in the Hogwarts library so it's cool to read books that Harry and his friends might have read. Anyone who's a big fan of Harry Potter would like to have these books. I'm not sure yet if these are books I would read multiple times but I've never seen these at the library and wanted to read them so that's why I got them. I don't think you have to have read all the Harry Potter books to enjoy these and I don't think by reading these books it would spoil anything before you've read the Harry Potter books. Younger kids might find these boring as they are very detailed.

My son completed all the Harry books and was so sad when it was over.  These books allow him to revisit the wizarding world.  Thank you Ms. Rowling.  You are a genius.
