JK Rowling publishes free new children’s book The Ickabog

Fans of the Harry Potter stories are in for a treat. The much loved children’s author JK Rowling has unveiled a new non Harry Potter story called The Ickabog. The story is going to be published in instalments for free on The Ickabog website.

The original story was written over ten years ago for JK Rowling’s own children. However since the lockdown started she felt it would help children during these unsettling times.

Excitingly, there is also The Ickabog Illustration competition open to seven to twelve year olds. Each day the famous author will make suggestions for what to draw. Entries will be chosen by the publishers and must be submitted by the child’s parent.

All royalties are going to be donated to help victims of the Coronavirus.
