Harry Potter’s back – level 1

17-02-2016 07:00

The Harry Potter book series is very popular. J.K. Rowling is the author. She sells 450 million books. The books are in 79 languages. There are eight Harry Potter movies. They make 7 billion dollars together.

There is a new book. It is called “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child”. You can buy it in the UK and in the USA on the 31st of July. This book is different, however. It is a play.

The play shows an adult Harry Potter. He has a job and three children.

Difficult words: series (a set of something), cursed (under a curse – evil/bad magic), adult (older, not a teenager).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
