Harry Potter Trivia

The Ridgefield Library

When trying to sell the first book, Rowling was so poor she had to type two copies of the manuscript because she couldn't afford to photocopy the original.


As a kid, Rowling told her first stories to her younger sister, Di. One of her earliest stories featured Di falling down a rabbit hole and getting fed strawberries by rabbits! Not so good at math? Don't worryJ.K. Rowling wasn't either. On her first math test at a new school, she scored a zero! Rowling and her British publisher buried a time capsule containing children's predictions for the last book under King's Cross Station in London. Guess who Rowling's favorite Harry Potter characters are! Hagrid and Professor Lupin! But, she confesses, "Even the horrible ones are really fun to write about!" The Hogwarts official motto is Drago Dormiens Nunquam Titillandus. It means, ‘Never tickle a sleeping dragon’! Hermoine is based on the author herself. "I think I was really annoying when I was 11," Rowling says. "I loosened up though, as I got older - a lot." c/o In Power Magazine
