The Real Magic of Harry Potter

Sarah Kate Stephenson

Abstract


There's a new trial in the Triwizard Tournament! Contestants simply have to explain why Harry Potter is so popular! The answer is simultaneously obvious, multiple, and slippery. Sarah Kate Stephenson gives us an interesting outlook on this enthralling conundrum, focusing on the positive atmosphere of the books, the defining qualities of Harry, Ron, and Hermione, the importance of friendship, and how the books really are written for children.
