The Harry Potter novels have now sold over 450 million copies worldwide and been translated into 72 languages. In 2012 she published her first book for adults, The Casual Vacancy. J.K.

    Comments about Harry Potter : The Magical Adventure Begins:

    A very nice little set for a young first time Harry Potter reader. It gives them a nice taste of the magic of the Harry Potter universe but stops before things get to scary. The books come in a very nice solid hardcover box, and the colours are very nice.

      Ideal Harry Potter starter pack, particularly for younger readers as this has the three most 'child-friendly' novels included before the Wizarding World gets a little darker.

      J. K. Rowling

      J K (Joanne Kathleen) Rowling was born in July 1965 at Yate General Hospital in England and grew up in Chepstow, Gwent where she went to Wyedean Comprehensive.

      Jo left Chepstow for Exeter University, where she earned a French and Classics degree, her course including one year in Paris. As a postgraduate she moved to London and worked as a researcher at Amnesty International among other jobs. She started writing the Harry Potter series during a delayed Manchester to London King's Cross train journey, and during the next five years, outlined the plots for each book and began writing the first novel.

      Jo then moved to northern Portugal, where she taught English as a foreign language. She married in October 1992 and gave birth to a daughter Jessica in 1993. When the marriage ended, she and Jessica returned to the UK to live in Edinburgh, where Harry Potter & the Philosopher's Stone was eventually completed.

      Jo married Dr. Neil Murray in 2001, and a brother for Jessica, David, was born in 2003. A sister, Mackenzie, followed in 2005.
