Synopsis

Mythmaker The Story of J.K. Rowling by Amy Sickels

Virtually everyone knows her name and the names of her wizarding characters. As the 13th richest woman in England, she earned her fortune in a rather unusual way - by writing books. J.K. Rowling is one of the most popular authors of the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Her books about Harry Potter's adventures are widely read by adults and children alike and have been translated into more than 64 languages. With the recent completion of the seven-book series, Rowling's popularity is at an all-time high. But Rowling didn't start out famous. As a single mother, she struggled for many years before her books were published. Mythmaker: The Story of J.K. Rowling, Second Edition is fully updated to tell her inspiring life story.

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

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Writing reviews help the children with their literacy skills and we always read the books together which gives us good quality family time!
