Hooray for Harry!

Although it’s been fifteen years since Harry Potter hit the shelves, it seems that there is no stopping the phenomenon.
Just a couple of weeks ago, Pottermore was finally launched following months of teasers and hype. The excitement was palpable, but sadly, for many it didn’t live up to expectations.
However, the madness continues this week, as the Harry Potter Studio Tour kicks into full force. Mr Frog will be taking a slightly hyper daughter with him this afternoon. The positive outcome is that the books are selling amazingly well and are certainly being re-read in our house.
So I say ‘Long live Harry, the boy who lived’, for his adventures have created a generation of readers and that can’t be bad.


The independent children's bookshop and tuition centre in the heart of Brentwood, Essex. Owned and run by Mr Frog & Mrs Chicken (happily married book-nerds), with the sole aim of bringing high quality books and tuition to our community.
