I really enjoy this series. It is a great way to learn about many historical and modern people. It is a great series for students to research an individual. For adults it is an interesting, and fast, way to learn something new about someone you find interesting.
I was excited to find out about Joanne Rowling. I had heard her story many times, and was uncertain if there would be anything new to learn in this book. However, considering I did not even know her first name is Joanne I figured I had a lot left to learn. I was correct. I only knew about a small portion of JK Rowling's life. It was fascinating, if you like Harry Potter at all then this is worth reading.
For those who read my reviews you know that I am not a huge fan of rhyming. It is hard to rhyme well. I tried to just ignore it, but there were too many times in this book were it just led to ackward word and sentence combinations just to keep with the rhyming scheme. It took away from the amazing content in the book. Also, at times it went a bit too much into Harry Potter and not enough focus on JK Rowling. Although, I know that this is hard because the two are pretty much synonymous.
I am really glad I picked up this book. I learned a lot about one of my favorite authors. It was an interesting look into her background, her struggle to become a published author, and her life after.
