Read a book that Harry Potter knows and loves -- and join J.K. Rowling in helping children's causes around the world. Rowling, author of the bestselling Harry Potter series, has written two delightful books intended as facsimiles of the very books used by Harry and other students at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Scholastic Inc.'s net proceeds from the sale of the books, and Rowling's royalties, are being donated to Comic Relief U.K., a British charity which supports such efforts as reuniting parents and children separated by war, and helping child victims of landmine explosions. "What is so wonderful about Comic Relief is that its costs are sponsored, therefore it does not take money for its own administration from the money given by the public," Rowling explains. "This means that in fact, because of accumulated interest, more than 100% of the money it raises it passes on to charity projects." Go to comicrelief.com/harrysbooks to learn more about this effort. Rowling dons the nom de plume Newt Scamander for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. It's on the required reading list for all Hogwarts students, and this facsimile of Harry's own copy includes his and his friends' margin notes. Also see Quidditch Through the Ages (ISBN 0439295025) for the complete rules of the most popular sport in the magical world. Both books are 64 pages long.
