Wonder what type of children’s book she’s working on. Whatever it is I’m buying it and I’m reading it. I’d ask how J.K. Rowling could go wrong, but we already read book 7, didn’t we? *cringe*
J.K. Rowling is to say goodbye to Harry Potter with a handwritten set of fairytales mentioned in her last wizard saga that she will auction for her children’s charity.
Fans hoping for another dose of Potter will be disappointed as the tales will not be published, but Rowling said on Thursday she was half-way through writing another children’s book.
A copy of The Tales of Beedle the Bard with illustrations by the author is to be sold at auction next month to raise money for The Children’s Voice charity she set up.
Of the five wizarding fairytales only one—“The Tale of the Three Brothers”—is told in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. She has produced just seven copies, bound in brown leather and decorated in silver and moonstone designs.
I particularly liked this kick-ass answer. JKR rocks!!!
Rowling has expressed surprise over the fuss that greeted her revelation over Dumbledore.
“Do I think a gay person can a be a moral compass? I think it’s ludicrous that we are asking that question in the 21st century. The Christian fundamentalists were never my base.”
