BIOGRAPHY - CHAPTER BOOK: Who Is J. K. Rowling? by Pam Pollack and Meg Belviso
This is one of my favorite lines of biographies for kids. In fact, in our school library, I put them together in their own section so kids could find them easily. Also, if they try one and like it, they can see what other ones we have and try another.
This particular volume was well done. It includes stories of J. K. Rowling's childhood, her family, her life as she was writing the Harry Potter series, and the impact of the series on her life. I've read other background information on her and was afraid this would feel "already done," but it felt fresh and interesting. Fun information on where some of her ideas came from, etc.
4 out of 5 stars
