With Harry Potter's adventures having come to their breathless end, J.K. Rowling is wasting no time when it comes to what's next.
The mega-selling author (400 million copies worldwide) has completed – and illustrated! – her first book since the publication of the seventh final Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
Only seven copies of the new book – a collection of fairytales titled The Tales of Beedle the Bard
– will be printed, and one will be auctioned next month to raise money for the charity The Children’s Voice, which helps youngsters at risk throughout Europe.
Bids will start at $60,000, reports The Times
in London. – Shelly Akers
