J Rowling has announced that the Ickabog will be titled “IckABog” to entertain fans of the Harry Potter book series as well as those interested in science fiction and fantasy. After chapters one and two, the “Harry Potter” author will publish the book in two volumes, with a third book scheduled for release in 2018.
The author said that the idea for the book came to her when she was still writing the “Harry Potter” series, and that she wrote most of the drafts in one go from the beginning – right through to the Potter series. In a statement on her website, she said: “When I realised I wanted to take a break from writing children’s books, I had planned to publish Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows when I left the Ickaboo that had been in my attic for years. I decided to move away from them for a while and keep the first draft of “IckABog” in the attic, “she said.
On Tuesday, Rowling said she came to the conclusion that the story belonged to her two young children because she read it to them in the evenings when they were little, which has always been a happy family memory. A few weeks ago I had the idea to publish it for free for children.
Rowling has alluded to the story in the past, describing it in 2009 as “one of the most important books I have worked on since then,” she wrote on her website. It is a story told to me by the first two readers of Ickabog, whom they remembered when they were little, and they demanded a copy of everything they liked most. She stressed that it came out just over a decade ago and that she did not intend to interpret it as something that is happening in our world right now.
In her statement, Rowling said the idea for Ickabog came to her when she was still writing Harry Potter. The novelist said Tuesday that she wrote the story for the launch – in the Potter books – and originally planned to publish it in a sequel to “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II,” but said that she wrote the story for a read-aloud book and that it should be “a great book for kids aged seven or nine and their parents to read to them,” she said.
The author has also launched a number of other initiatives to provide entertainment for children and young people, but this is not the first initiative launched by her children.
Return to the world of wizards, recitation of an ongoing storytelling project that also includes the likes of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Lord of the Rings and David Beckham. The two new books are accompanied by a series of short stories by the author as well as a series of illustrations and illustrations from the book.
The Harry Potter author said Tuesday that decades ago she wrote fairy tales for her children as bedtime stories for them. Rowling said the drafts of the stories remained in her attic until she focused on writing books for adults, but they said they stayed with her in the attic for a few years before Rowling focused on writing the books as adults. She said the drafts of the stories will stay in my attic until she focuses on writing adult books, “Rowling said.
Her children, now teenagers, were touched when she recently suggested retrieving the stories and publishing them for free. She said that while she was working on finishing the books, she started reading the chapters back to her family in the evening.
The first two chapters were posted online on July 5, with daily instalments to follow by July 10. A new chapter of the Ickabog will be published on August 1 and then again on September 5, according to the book’s website.
