Four new Harry Potter stories set to release next month, sending fans into a complete frenzy. The new stories promise to “delve deeper into the rich history of magic”.
The stories will be releasing on 27 June and will delve deeper into the history of magic. The books are adapted from the British Library exhibition’s audio book “Harry Potter: A History of Magic.” Pottermore Publishing will launch the ‘bitesize’ eBooks. The central theme of the books are the lessons taught at Hogwarts school of Witchcraft and Witchery.
Four NEW stories
The titles of the stories are as follows:
- Harry Potter: A Journey Through Charms and Defence Against the Dark Arts,
- Potions and Herbology,
- Divination and Astronomy,
- Care of Magical Creatures.
Additionally, the Pottermore website promises that the books “will take you back in time once again to learn about the traditional folklore and magic at the heart of the Harry Potter stories.” In addition, it states: ”Prepare to delve deeper into the rich history of magic (be it our own Muggle history, or the magical world created by J.K. Rowling).”
The stories also promise, ”In addition to exploring the origins of magic through history and folklore, the eBook shorts will also feature notes, manuscript pages and charming sketches as previously seen in Harry Potter: A History of Magic.”
The stories will be illustrated by London-based artist Rohan Daniel Eason. Additionally, the stories will be available in a number of languages. They will all be available to pre-order at Amazon UK and Amazon US, Apple and Kobo.
The original HP craze
In 1997, the first Harry Potter book came out, and was the first of 7 books that changed the face of literature. The books revolved around the adventures of a boy named Harry Potter and his friends in Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
The last film of the series, titled Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, came out in 2010.
