Who is J.K. Rowling? by Pam Pollack, Meg Belviso


Who is J.K. Rowling? by Pam Pollack, Meg Belviso

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.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
