'No Muggle Prime Minister has ever set foot in the Ministry of Magic, for reasons most succinctly summed up by ex-Minister Dugald McPhail (term of office 1858-1865): "their puir wee braines couldnae cope wi' it."' - J.K. Rowling
Pottermore Presents is a collection of J.K. Rowling's writing from the Pottermore archives: short reads originally featured on pottermore.com with some exclusive new additions. These eBooks, with writing curated by Pottermore, will take you beyond the Harry Potter stories as J.K. Rowling reveals her inspiration, intricate details of characters' lives and surprises from the wizarding world.
These stories of power, politics and pesky poltergeists give you a glimpse into the darker side of the wizarding world, revealing the ruthless roots of Professor Umbridge, the lowdown on the Ministers for Magic and the history of the wizarding prison Azkaban. You will also delve deeper into Horace Slughorn's early years as Potions master at Hogwarts - and his acquaintance with one Tom Marvolo Riddle.
If you are a Harry Potter fan, this book is a must have. It includes the secret pasts of the villains in the series including Umbridge, Quirrel, and even Peeves the poltergeist. It discusses potions and their history such as the most famous, polyjuice potion. It also has exclusive insights from Rowling on how she created these great characters and potions. Overall, I am very pleased, and am getting the other two potter more books very soon.👍🏻👍🏻😊
These short stories are an excellent addition to the mainline Harry Potter books. I am in awe at the ease at which J.K. continues to expand her Wizarding World and I can't wait for more bits of info!
Never change peeves.
Continuing from the first book the second book in this series sheds light on more characters and certain subjects. Such as a certain pictures back ground, fudge and his successor weren’t the only idiots who served minster, making me loath a certain witch more (didn’t think it was possible), and the horror of the most infamous wizard prison.
