  • J. K. Rowling is the author who gave us the magical Harry Potter universe. Whether you love her or disagree with her views, her story is truly aspiring. Though I haven’t read the entire Harry Potter series yet, I was interested in Rowling’s journey, from her modest childhood to celebrity status. Therefore, I chose to read Who Is J.K. Rowling? written by Pam Pollack and Meg Belvisom and beautifully illustrated by Stephen Marchesi. This book is an unauthorized biography aimed at younger readers and it is written in a simple yet entertaining manner.

    Everybody knows that the idea for Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone came to Rowling while travelling by train. However, she loved writing and telling stories from a young age, thus she entertained her friends with stories she made up. The passion for writing followed Jo throughout her early adult life and she managed to squeeze a little time to write as often as she could. Writing had a therapeutic effect on Rowling’s mind, especially when she went through though times. Yet, from the moment she had the epiphany about a boy who “had round glasses and a scar shaped like a lightning bolt.” (p. 6), her path slowly led her towards her lifelong dream of becoming an author. Though Rowling had an early life filled with hardship, I admire her perseverance to finish her book.

    What I love the most about this biography is that we’re not only following Rowling’s life, but also the journey of the Harry Potter series, from the first spark of inspiration to fandom. There are some interesting pieces of information about Rowling, her bumpy road to publication and the success that affected her and her family. You will also read about the films, Pottermania, Pottermore, Rowling’s charity work and so on. The book contains some brief sidenotes about places and people who influenced or played an important role in Rowling’s growth as a writer, as well as other facts readers may like to know. There is also a timeline of Rowling’s life, a timeline of the world and sources the authors quoted in the book. Furthermore, please bear in mind that this biography contains some spoilers from the Harry Potter books!

    “Jo might have finished writing Harry Potter, but chances are that kids will continue to read about him for generations to come. Harry’s world of dragons, castles, and magic wands is truly timeless. Perhaps one day he will take his place among other classic children’s book characters like Peter Pan and Alice in Wonderland, with his story read by children of all ages forever.” (P 101)

  • I got this book for my daughter for Easter but I was the one who couldn't put it down! As somebody who wants to be an author, I find her story very inspirational. The book was well written and had lots of extras to explain concepts more in depth. A lot of the book was about Harry Potter and how she created the Harry Potter world. Very good, great for kids but good for adults too!

  • I liked how it told how she struggled but never gave up on reaching her dream and she did reach far beyond what she ever imagined. SHE IS MY HERO, ROW-MODEL AND MY MOTIVATION TO HELP OTHERS THROUGH MY PHOTOGRAPHY!!! See I have a very similar story behind my life and I look at her story and I think how much we have in common except I just started my journey and I haven’t even scared the surface I’m still working on becoming a professional photographer/photojournalist but someday I’m going to make it to a big time magazine or newspaper but i do have a website: sites.google.com/view/hjartandcreativewriting

  • Great little book. We buy lots of Who Was books and use them for homeschool enrichment. Short chapters, larger font, and lots of pictures make these books an easy read. This was a great addition to our collection.

  • I found a series that my kid actually enjoys reading. Its not pulling teeth to get her to read anymore. The kid's world is opening up to her. Amazing to see! And she loves Harry Potter, so why not a book about the lady who created that world.

  • My students are in a 5th and 6th grade gifted class and all really enjoy the entire series of "Who Was?" "Who Is?" and "What Was?" books for their AR (Accelerated Reader) goals. These series are all classified as nonfiction, with book level from 4.5-6.0 and they are worth 1 point.

  • "Who Is J.K. Rowling" is an entertaining and quick read at just 105 pages. The following is a micro-sampler of what is contained in this book:
    Chapter 2: A Flying Car (commences on page 21): Key details from Rowling's childhood are discussed, along with some of her favorite books.
    Chapter 5: The Slush Pile (begins on page 46): This chapter includes facts on J.K. Rowling's journey towards submitting her writings to a receptive agent.
    Chapter 8: Truly Magical (starts on page 85): Important information is shared on how much Rowling's family life changed as her fame started to sky-rocket even further. I thought that it was great to include some information about the houses and security detail.
    "Who Is J.K. Rowling" by Pam Pollack and Meg Belviso (illustration by Stephen Marchesi) is a book best for those who enjoy the Harry Potter films and/or books. It is also a great book for those who like biographies about self-made people.

  • This book was purchased for a 6th grader's assignment. She was seeking information about this author. Disappointed, she used the book but it lacked enough content. For example, the author provides basic facts about J.K. Rowling but does not elaborate with interesting follow-up information. The book could very well have been written in bullet-point style. The 6th grader gleaned little information from this book; rather, she needed to turn more to the internet to fill in gaps that could have been provided by this author.
