There are many children's writers around at present who knock Rowling into a cocked hat. In terms of quality of writing I would rate Rowling alongside Enid Blyton. Nevertheless children who have hardly picked up a book in their lives are becoming compulsive readers because of her.

Also try Philip Pullman's "His Dark Materials" trilogy, outstanding. Interestingly both Pullman and Rowling have editions published in the UK to look like adult books, so grown-ups don't get embarassed reading them on public transport.

Just want to commend to everyone the Harry Potter books on tape, read by Jim Dale. I'm halfway through "Chamber of Secrets" and having a ball. Check 'em out at your public library!

Cheers, Nancy

Please, someone read Alan Garner (Weirdstone of Brisingamen, Elidor, The Owl Service) - they knock Harry Potter into the proverbial cocked hat.

Actually, Sorcha, Rowling sounds pretty classy, from what I've heard. There was a little piece in my loocal newspaper that said she was scheduled to receive an award from Queen Elizabeth (OBE, I think), and Rowling cancelled because her daughter was sick that day. The ceremony was re-scheduled, I believe. So I think she's really doing these books for charity. And who better to make sure that they fit into the Harry Potter corpus properly?

Which will need to be in two volumes.judging by the existing pattern of increase in thickness.

Yes, hideously expensive ($4.99), but you get a cute little cloth bag too. It would be almost .05 per bean if you didn't figure in the bag. Marked down from $7.00 - what a deal!

I'm in Ravenclaw -- probably because I responded that if I found a sack of coins I'd spend 'em. ~:o)

Entertaining site, I like the Howler messages.

Waiting for book 3 to come out in paperback, but can't find any info on that.

I just am not signing myself in there! But my young friend with Asperger's has, and got himself into Slytherin first,and then Gryffindor (I think, maybe Hufflepuff). From the way he grinned, he quite deliberately made choices to get the reults he wanted, but as I haven't been there, I don't know how.

Hmm. If they were u-less, they would be for the S market, I should think. I've seen them; my daughter had a bag. Outrageously expensive, if I recall?

The ones I bought were U-less. (For the US market, probably.) They have little pictures of beans with the flavors listed. It would be fun to put some in a dish on your desk and watch the boss as he pops a sardine one in his mouth.

We can tide ourselves over with the two books coming out March 2001 that she wrote for the charity Comedy Relief. (They'll be published in the USA by Scholastic, in the UK by whoever publishes her there, and the rest of the world will have to look it up.) Depending on what company your bookstore uses, the titles might be under her name, or under the pseudonyms. The books are Quidditch Through the Ages by Kennilworthy Whisp and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by Newt Scarmander.

Yes I'm far more interested in the next book than the merchandising.

Isn't it Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans?

I haven't read any Harry Potter - must do. I did (on a friend's tip) manage to purchase some of Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans. I really like the horseradish ones, and black pepper wasn't bad. The booger ones don't taste much like boogers unless you snort sugar (not that I know what boogers should taste like), and I don't like the sardine ones at all. Future flavors include dirt, mustard and vomit...what - no worms?

J.K Rowling is taking a year off, so we have to wait until 2002. Me, I'd rather have it done right than done quickly.

You might want to check out http://filmforce.ign.com (someday I'll have time to learn how to make a blue clicky thing, and, no there's no "www." in the address.) Filmforce is a site that I check regularly for news about upcoming movies. Their information is good, their graphics are good, they name their sources and they distinguish between confirmed fact and rumor. Take a look at the picture of Hagrid's house. I wouldn't mind moving in, myself.

Warner Bros launched the official Harry Potter Movie website last Thursday in the UK. I think they've made a pretty good job of it, tho' it takes quite a long time to load (you can skip the intro, but it's worth a look) and there's virtually no information about the movie at all, apart from the official poster, but it's great fun for kids (that's my story), loads of interactive stuff, and presumably it will be added to regularly as the release date approaches.

The chat forum is difficult IMO, but then I'm used to this one. Pity they didn't take some tips from Max.

The sorting hat has put me in Gryffindor.
