Muggles world-wide have rejoiced this week with the announcement of two new Harry Potter books.
It has been 20 wonderful, magic-filled, Voldemort-fighting years since the original release of Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone, and to mark that achievement, we are getting Harry Potter: A History of Magic and Harry Potter: A Journey through a History of Magic.
This first book will be used along-side the British Library’s exhibition and teaches us about the curriculum of Hogwarts. Potions, Herbology, Divination – it’s all there! And the second book will teach us about ancient witchcraft and Unicorns.
Sadly, neither book will feature our beloved heroes Harry, Ron and Hermione. And to sprinkle a bit more salt into that wound, J.K. Rowling won’t be writing either title. But that’s okay! We all enjoyed The Cursed Child, and if you are lucky enough to live in London then I’m sure it would be worthwhile visiting the exhibition.
I’ll still be getting my order in for these new books – they have also got never-before-seen sketches and manuscript pages from J.K. Rowling! And besides, you’re not a true fan unless you have every single Harry Potter book available.
So rejoice my muggle friends. For the Dark Lord has gone and from the ashes rise more Harry Potter goodness!
