Free Things To Do With Your Kids In NJ
All My Harry Potter Fans!!! J.K. Rowling is releasing a new book chapter-by-chapter online for free.
Rowling is hosting The Ickabog on a new website with anywhere from “a chapter (or two, or three)”being published at a time, according to Rowling’s note. The first two chapters are available to read now, and although there’s no description of the story, The Ickabog seems to have more in common with traditional fairy tales. Picture faraway kingdoms with lords and kings.
Also, well-known faces from the Wizarding World and beyond have lent their voices for Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (Sorcerer’s Stone) for families to enjoy while they are confined at home. Daniel Radcliffe, Stephen Fry, David Beckham, Dakota Fanning, Claudia Kim, Noma Dumezweni, and Eddie Redmayne are amongst the cast of narrators, with more surprises and special appearances to come. It began on May 5 but you can catch up and all seventeen chapters of the book will be released between now and the middle of summer.
