As keen Harry Potter fans, we were delighted to read the first 2 chapters of The Ickabog, released today by J.K. Rowling. It is a story written for children about truth and the abuse of power, prevalent in many classic children's tales that remains relevant even in today's modern world. Chapters will be released between May 26th and July 10th on the Ickabog website, a wonderful story to read alone (recommended for ages 7-9) or as a family.
There is also a competition to illustrate the story, when it is published. Each day, J.K. Rowling will be making suggestions for what children might like to draw or paint to illustrate the story.
