Can you remember who was sitting on Harry’s bed in that opening scene to Year 2?
Hint: Tennis ball-like eyes. Bat-like ears. Pillow case for clothes.
… Got it?!
That nutty yet lovable little house elf who disrupted that important dinner for the Dursleys right before Fred and George and Ron helped Harry escape via their flying car.
(Emerson made a sweet little costume of Dobby the other day, btw. Old pillow case and everything. Was pretty epic going to the park with him wearing it. Hah.)
As I read this book to Emerson, I was struck by the sheer beauty and delight of J.K. Rowling’s writing. It’s so good it’s easy to overlook. A blurb from the NY Times on the dust cover perfectly captures the essence of it’s splendor: “What makes the Potter books so popular is the radically simple fact that they’re so good.”
As always, I’m excited to share a few of my favorite Big Ideas so let’s jump on our brooms and have some fun!
