Harry Potter Carnival #45

Written By: Dana Huff - Apr• 29•07

Welcome to the 45th Harry Potter Carnival!

J.K. Rowling

Most of the mainstream media reports only on JKR’s wealth, and indeed, sometimes when I have to go fishing for JKR news, I’ve done it, too, but here’s something fun we can all enjoy. We should have known she was only writing those books to recruit for Hogwarts.

Fan Art

I’m still over the moon for Keith Johnson’s work, so I decided to feature him two weeks in a row. Here’s another sample:

Harry and the Boa Constrictor

I love the way Keith managed to use perspective and make the glass look real.

Theories and Speculation

JKR has hinted at something being “up” with Petunia, and she certainly knows more about the wizarding world than we thought. But can she really be a “Half-Blood Squib“?

Hermione’s Library

I have been having an awful lot of fun re-reading the series in preparation for DH, but until today, I had forgotten what a wealth of information one can find in HPL’s Readers Guides:

Random Fandom

The biggest news for fans this week is probably the release of the OotP trailer.

Looks great!

Just for Fun

I humbly submit my own conjecture about the various Hogwarts’ teachers in “Would You Send Your Kid to Hogwarts” over at my education blog.

To submit Potterica for the next carnival, use my carnival submission form. Please note the category for which it should be considered. Deadline is 10:00 P.M. Friday, May 11. The next HP carnival will appear Saturday, May 12. As always, I could especially use submissions for fan art!
