K10: HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX

The Kidliterati Ten is an interview series with young readers. We ask them about a favorite book and hope that you enjoy their answers.

Tell us a little about yourself: what is your first name, how old are you, and what is your favorite flavor of ice cream?


My name is Owen. I’m 11 years old, and my favorite ice cream is mint chocolate chip.

What book did you read and why did you choose it?
I read HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX. I chose it because I had already started the series and I want to finish it.

Can you describe this book in one word?

Awesome.


What was your favorite part of this story?

When this guy Mad-Eye Moody used a de-lighter and took all the lights from the neighborhood to light the torches in the hall.

If you had a problem similar to the main character's problem, what would you do?

Plan ahead.

What would you say to your best friend to convince them to read this book?

It is full of action and has an interesting plot.

What do you think about the book's cover?

It makes me want to know what's happening and to read up to that scene.

Would you want to read another book about these characters? Why or why not?

Yes, because they go on dangerous adventures and it makes me want to keep reading to find out what happens.

Can you name another book that reminds you of this one?

Not really.

If you could ask the author one question about this book, what would it be?

How did you make up the characters' names?

In an interview with Amazon.com, author JK Rowling talked about how she comes up with the names of her characters:

“ I invented some of the names in the Harry books, but I also collect strange names. I've gotten them from medieval saints, maps, dictionaries, plants, war memorials, and people I've met!”

Harry Potter is due to start his fifth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. His best friends Ron and Hermione have been very secretive all summer and he is desperate to get back to school and find out what has been going on. However, what Harry discovers is far more devastating than he could ever have expected...

Suspense, secrets and thrilling action from the pen of J.K. Rowling ensure an electrifying adventure that is impossible to put down.
