The talented Harry Potter author, whom we thought had deserted children’s books for a more adult audience, has stated that she will be once again writing for a younger age group. Last month, J.K. Rowling released The Casual Vacancy, a novel that shocked critics with graphic adult content. After appealing to the older age group, Rowling promises that she will go back to catering to a family-friendly audience at a future date. Rowling is, of course, famous for her tales of the young wizard Harry Potter who attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. It will be fascinating to see this British novelist write another best selling book series for children, which I am confident, we all can agree, would probably be life-changing.
Rowling herself states that, "I have a lot of things on my laptop currently, including a couple of things for children -- for a slightly younger age group than Harry Potter was aimed at -- which are nearly done and will, I think, be the next thing I publish. I have run them by my children, and they seem to like them, which is always a good sign.”
