Harry Potter’s back – level 2

17-02-2016 07:00

Harry Potter is back with a new story. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will be in bookstores in the UK and USA on the 31st of July.

However, this book won’t be like the rest of the Harry Potter books. This one is a play. The book happens 19 years after the events of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” and shows Harry Potter as an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic and a father of three children.

J.K. Rowling’s series has sold more than 450 million copies worldwide in 79 languages. The eight movies grossed more than 7 billion dollars.

Difficult words: cursed (under a curse – evil magic), gross (to make in total).

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