This personal and in-depth look at the dizzying pop-cultural phenomenon surrounding the Harry Potter series is written by the Web mistress of the most popular and most trusted Harry Potter fan site on the Internet. 8 pages of b&w photos.
From the Publisher:
An analysis of the pop-culture phenomenon surrounding the Harry Potter series, written by the founder of The Leaky Cauldron Web site, evaluates how the books inspired international camaraderie and a generation of critical thinkers and new readers, in an account complemented by an interview with J. K. Rowling. Original. 100,000 first printing.
Annotation:
Not so much a history of the Harry Potter books as a look at the cultural frenzy they created, this dive into the world of Potter-mania tracks the 10 years during which the seven books in J.K. Rowling's series were originally published. The author, the webmistress of the Potter-themed Leaky Cauldron Web site, explores everything from Internet rumors of character deaths, to rock bands inspired by the wizarding world, to the phenomenon of book banning. This celebration of the books that changed the face of children's literature (for example, their popularity inspired the New York Times to start listing children's and young adult bestsellers) features an introduction by Harry's own creator, author J.K. Rowling.
