Category : Post Primary , Primary

J.K.Rowling is publishing a new children’s book online. The “Harry Potter” author released the first two chapters of “The Ickabog” on a new website Tuesday 26th of May, explaining that the story will be released for free over the next seven weeks. Posted every weekday, each installment will be “a chapter (or two or three).”

J.K.Rowling wrote ‘The Ickabog’ a long time ago and read it to her two children. Rowling said that  “It isn’t Harry Potter and it doesn’t include magic. This is an entirely different story.”

You can read it for free every day. You also get an opportunity to enter an illustration competition. Please see link below.
