We know that many of you love the Harry Potter stories written by J K Rowling. When we saw this new story and competition recently, we thought that many of you would love to read it.
So far, five chapters of the Ickabog have been published and are ready for you to read – it’s free. J K Rowling would also like children to illustrate her new book, which she is planning on publishing in November.
These quotes from her website explain it all for you:
‘The most exciting part, for me, at least, is that I’d like you to illustrate The Ickabog for me. Every day, I’ll be making suggestions for what you might like to draw. You can enter the official competition being run by my publishers, for the chance to have your artwork included in a printed version of the book due out later this year. I’ll be giving suggestions as to what to draw as we go along, but you should let your imagination run wild.’
‘When the book is published in November, I’m going to donate all my royalties to help people who have been affected by the coronavirus. We’ll give full details later in the year.’
Get reading and enjoy! 🙂 https://www.theickabog.com/home/
