The Wizarding World invites fans to come together and celebrate a very special date in the Wizarding World calendar: Back to Hogwarts.
Two Years of The Ickabog
Today marks 2 years since the serialisation of J.K. Rowling’s original fairy tale The Ickabog.
This story was published online for children in lockdown to enjoy. A story for families, parents, children, teachers and students to share and read together.
J.K. Rowling is donating the royalties from the book and audiobook to her charitable trust, The Volant Charitable Trust to assist vulnerable groups who’ve been particularly impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic in the UK and internationally. So far in excess of £10m has been donated to 128 charities.
To celebrate 2 years, we have made the first 6 chapters of this witty adventure available for free to read here. We hope that you and your families come together to enjoy and read this wonderful tale about a mythical monster and a kingdom in peril – an adventure that tests two children’s bravery to the limit.
If you’re feeling curious, step into the pages of this book to discover the story of The Ickabog. Start reading now.
