J.K. Rowling is the author of the seven Harry Potter books, which have sold over 500 million copies, been translated into over 80 languages, and made into eight blockbuster films. She also wrote three short series companion volumes for charity, including Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which later became the inspiration for a new series of films. Harry’s story as a grown-up was later continued in a stage play, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, which J.K. Rowling wrote with playwright Jack Thorne and director John Tiffany.

In 2020, she returned to publishing for younger children with the fairy tale The Ickabog, which she initially published for free online for children in lockdown, later donating all her book royalties to help vulnerable groups affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.

J.K. Rowling has received many awards and honors for her writing, including for her detective series written under the name Robert Galbraith. She supports a wide number of humanitarian causes through her charitable trust Volant, and is the founder of the children’s care reform charity Lumos.

For as long as she can remember, J.K. Rowling wanted to be a writer, and is at her happiest in a room, making things up. She lives in Scotland with her family.

This book gets a place of honor (despite the fact that it doesn’t need a recommendation), because it has transcended age boundaries more than any other book I've read. My parents started reading it aloud to my brother and I when we were in elementary school, all clustered together on a couch or spread out across the living room. They did voices, they did gestures, they passed the book back and forth so the other could drink some coffee.

From A Bookseller Through the Ages

I don't have a particularly strong memory, but that is one that has stuck with me to this day. My family continued to read or listen to the series together until the end. So if you’re looking for a story that functions perfectly as a read aloud, this may be your pick—both the books and the audiobooks are lovely (check out Libro.fm for the audio).
