Everyone loves Harry Potter. Now kids can learn about Harry's creator!

In 1995, on a four-hour-delayed train from Manchester to London, J. K. Rowling conceived of the idea of a boy wizard named Harry Potter. Upon arriving in London, she began immediately writing the first book in the saga. Rowling's true-life, rags-to-riches story is as compelling as the world of Hogwarts that she created. This biography details not only Rowling's life and her love of literature but the story behind the creation of a modern classic.

    this book is so good. j.k. rowling is a woman who created a series called harry potter. i also like this book because it informs me about rowling's life and important facts. i may also like this book because i have a soft spot for non-fiction books and the who is/ who was/ where was/ where is books. who is j.k. rowling also explains the difficulties and tragedies that j.k. rowling faces, which means that the author(s) is(are) trying to tell us that j.k. rowling is an important person to study about, or learn about. i rate this book 5 stars because this book informs me about a lot of success and tragedies about j.k. rowling.
