I have even just stumbled upon Pottermore, a website that expands on the wizarding universe and Harry’s family. Did you know Harry was born in 1980? Mind blown. My 90’s childhood experience was crap next to this kids. I would have skipped the MC Hammer pants and traded Gak in for freaking magic.
I have just started reading the series again to my 7 year old son, and he loves it. A brilliant tale with your classic underdog turned top dog story, filled with mystery, heartbreak and joy.
It definitely has inspired some designs from me, more to come as we read on no doubt.
