Description

‘Minerva was the Roman goddess of warriors and wisdom. William McGonagall is celebrated as the worst poet in British history. There was something irresistible to me about his name, and the idea that such a brilliant woman might be a distant relative of the buffoonish McGonagall.’ – J.K. Rowling

Pottermore Presents is a collection of J.K. Rowling’s writing from the Pottermore archives: short reads originally featured on pottermore.com with some exclusive new additions. These eBooks, with writing curated by Pottermore, will take you beyond the Harry Potter stories as J.K. Rowling reveals her inspiration, intricate details of characters’ lives and surprises from the wizarding world.

These stories of heroism, hardship and dangerous hobbies profile two of the Harry Potter stories’ most courageous and iconic characters: Minerva McGonagall and Remus Lupin. J.K. Rowling also gives us a peek behind the closed curtains of Sybill Trelawney’s life, and you’ll encounter the reckless, magical-beast-loving Silvanus Kettleburn along the way.

    I found this book fantastic, especially for avid readers of the original series who, with childish delight, can find Easter eggs and clues from the first books.

    This book answered so many questions for me. Many of the teachers mentioned in this book I'd never taken much care to notice, but with the amount of detail put into everyone mentioned it really was an excellent story to have read
  • A little gem.

    Even though these are short stories and histories about specific teachers or encyclopaedic data about the Wizarding World in general, J.K. Rowling with her immense talent and wonderful imagination as a writer, never ceases to amaze. Such in depth and sometimes moving knowledge about her character are a beauty to read, especially Remus Lupin, but more preferably Minerva McGonnagall. Definitely worth a read, if it's a short one.
