It matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be- J.K.Rowling


We do not need magic to change our world, we carry all the power we need inside ourselves

J.K.Rowling

This short and inspiring biography of JK Rowling, the writer who made kids fall in love with reading again, is well-researched and beautifully illustrated in an original paper-cut style. It gave me a much better idea of  the writer’s background, tenacity, determination and love of writing. I didn’t know about her mother’s MS illness and the profound effect it must have had on her family. I loved her words on the importance of failure which can help you strip away the inessential. I think a lot of teens will relate to her story of not being accepted into the university of her choice due to her less than perfect academic record.

The colour scheme and the illustrations in this book are just amazing and are so in tune with the text. I also loved the way JK Rowling’s quotes became marvellous word art.

This book isn’t just for fans of Harry Potter, who, no doubt, will be delighted. It has some valuable life lessons to offer to every  reader.

    1. You’ll love it then. She is a great author. The target audience is teenagers, though. I just loved the artwork in such an unusual style and of course the fact that there is chapter 9 1/2😁
