It doesn’t surprise me and gives me yet another excuse to get my young dyslexic clients into the Harry Potter books. There is nothing more satisfying than seeing a child who couldn’t read more than Y1 or Y2 level, reading Harry Potter after one week, with competency and full comprehension.

Apparently J.K. Rowling herself claimed that “The Potter books in general are a prolonged argument for tolerance, a prolonged plea for an end to bigotry.”
