Everyone loves Harry Potter. Now kids can learn about Harry's creator!

In 1995, on a four-hour-delayed train from Manchester to London, J. K. Rowling conceived of the idea of a boy wizard named Harry Potter. Upon arriving in London, she began immediately writing the first book in the saga. Rowling's true-life, rags-to-riches story is as compelling as the world of Hogwarts that she created. This biography details not only Rowling's life and her love of literature but the story behind the creation of a modern classic.

This was a book that went into the life of a 5-star book righter.

Reading it now. Good so far.

In my opinion, I really liked this book this book. One reason why is because it is a true story.Another reason why is that it is a biogrophy. ****Spoiler Alert**** My favorite part is when she starts writing the Harry Potter books and she writes in cafes after her daughter,Jessica falls asleep in the stroller. You might like this book if you like the Who Is series. You should read this book because it is very intresting nd it will make you want to not put it down.

my mom has this book and said it was good is it good for a girl like me I love these books so tell me is it good I love her movies.

If you want to know how Harry Potter began, you have to read this book! It is so interesting to learn how J.K. Rowling came up with the idea of an entirely different world, and how it became so popular! I really enjoyed reading about her early life, and how it gave her many of the ideas for the Harry Potter books. I think it was really interesting to read about how she came up with the characters' names and where she got her inspiration from. It was a very nice book!

this book is so good. j.k. rowling is a woman who created a series called harry potter. i also like this book because it informs me about rowling's life and important facts. i may also like this book because i have a soft spot for non-fiction books and the who is/ who was/ where was/ where is books. who is j.k. rowling also explains the difficulties and tragedies that j.k. rowling faces, which means that the author(s) is(are) trying to tell us that j.k. rowling is an important person to study about, or learn about. i rate this book 5 stars because this book informs me about a lot of success and tragedies about j.k. rowling.
