The books are read and enjoyed by children and adults alike and have also been made into hugely popular films. Do the Harry Potter books live up to the hype? You usually need to read a Terry Pratchett novel to ensure constant laughter throughout but Rowling has managed to infuse this book with a lovely wit and charm that will both amuse and delight adults and children. Dudley looked a lot like Uncle Vernon. He had a large, pink face, not much neck, small, watery blue eyes and thick, blond hair that lay smoothly on his thick, fat head. Aunt Petunia often said that Dudley looked like a baby angel — Harry often said that Dudley looked like a pig in a wig. There are characters in this book that will remind us of all the people we have met.
The much-awaited Harry Potter and the Cursed Child was released three days ago and all those who solemnly swore by the 'Boy who Lived' till.
