It’s not enough that everyone at his new school calls him Thornmallow because he’s “prickly on the outside, squishy within.” It’s not enough that the only talent he shows at Wizard’s Hall is an ability to make messes of even the simplest spells.

Wizard Duel: Minerva McGonagall vs Severus Snape - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt. 2
A young eleven-year-old, with green eyes and perennially disheveled hair, finds himself precipitously propelled into student life at a renowned school of wizardry over which hangs a sombre and threatening miasma.

The young novice is befriended and supported by an engaging group of first-year students, especially an intrepid girl with unusual hair and a boy who is the loyal best friend who sustains the novice's courage.

I recently read a Jane Yolen book which was actually kind of boring , and decided to look her up. She claims that Harry Potter was her idea, and she deserves a cheque from JK Rowling because she wrote a similar book eight years prior. What do you think?
