J.K. Rowling Has Urged People Not To Buy A Rare “Harry Potter”


J.K. Rowling has joined a police appeal to help find a rare Harry Potter prequel she wrote that was stolen during a burglary in Birmingham. The story was handwritten by Rowling on both sides of an A5 postcard for an auction in 2008, raising funds for charities that support reading. The prequel, set years before Harry’s birth, is about James Potter and Sirus Black escaping from Muggle police officers on broomsticks after a motorcycle chase. Rowling joined police in urging people not to buy the manuscript if they’re offered it. The rare postcard was stolen along with some jewellry between 13-24 April. The only people who will buy this unique piece are true Harry Potter fans, say investigating officers.More than 450 million copies of the seven original Harry Potter books have been sold worldwide in 79 languages. The movie franchise has grossed more than $7 billion worldwide ………..Ed
