Book Overview

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.

   J.K. Rowling Mini-Biography
In ''Who Is J.K. Rowling,'' the English novelist's irreverent and witty take on the world's most famous children's book series is immediately apparent. The following is a micro-sampler of what is contained in this book Chapter 2 A Flying Car Key details from Rowling's childhood are discussed, along with some of her favourite books. This chapter includes Rowling's journey towards submitting her works to a receptive agent. In Part Two, Rowling reveals how her family life changed as her fame started to sky rocket. I'm delighted that the government has included some information about the houses and security detail in the report, Libowitz said. In ''Who Is J.K. Rowling,'' the young Harry is 15, and fully a teenager at last, writes longtime friend Pam Pollack and longtime collaborator Meg Belviso. It is also a great book for those who like biographies of self-made people.
One of the best books I have ever read.
   got what I was looking for
I wanted to know more about Rowling's life and got it, Morgenthau said. Not bad, but also, not as detailed as I would have liked, he said. The book is now available in hardback, priced at $27.95.
This book is full of information, so it's a good read. If you have read the Harry Potter series, I would recommend it to people who have read it.
I enjoyed the book, said Dr. Steve Yeates, who co-chaired the inquiry. It's just that I think it could have been better. I have read this book for a book report, and I have learned a lot from it.

   9 Year-old point of veiw
I really liked this one, because the book wasn't about someone with a really terrible younger life, but about a group of friends who were having a good time. I've seen the Harry Potter movies, and I still can't get over the fact that we're losing a good friend.
   Great little book!
My daughter has to read a certain number of books at school. But there also needs to be a certain number of non-fiction books. She can easily find fiction ones, too. But non-fiction is a little bit more difficult to choose because she is not interested in reading it. These little who was or who is books proved to be interesting to her and this one on JK Rowling is perfect since she has all but fallen in love with Harry Potter. In her fifth-grade classroom, she has a blond ponytail.
   Wonderful biography about J.K. Rowling written for children
The second book in the series, "The Fall of the King's Revenge," was also highly praised. The book is also written for children. Both are highly recommended reading. Just about everything about Harry Potter will set records. I'm delighted that Ms. Rowling has agreed to let her learn about the writer's story and how the stories came about, Mr. Dhaliwal said. The book is well written and the illustrations are exceptional.
   Loved this!
This book is well done and very entertaining, even for the average Joe.
