If you are someone who loves Harry Potter, I have the best news for you. It seems that more stories are set to be released into the ‘Harry Potter’ universe by J.K. Rowling.
If that isn’t enough to get you smiling, they are due to come out soon.
A collection of ebooks entitled ‘Harry Potter: A Journey Through…’ will include non-fiction short stories that are adapted from the ‘Harry Potter: A History of Magic’ audiobook.
Illustrations will also be included from London-based artist, Rohan Daniel Eason.
The following description will whet your appetite:
“The series features four bite-sized reads, each themed by Hogwarts lessons, and will take you back in time once again to learn about the traditional folklore and magic at the heart of the Harry Potter stories.”
The Pottermore Twitter account teased us with the news of the launch:
“Ever wondered where magic really came from? Introducing the Harry Potter: A Journey Through… non-fiction eBook shorts, adapted from the audiobook Harry Potter: A History of Magic and inspired by the @britishlibrary exhibition of the same name,” the publishing house captioned the tweet.
