Kids' Letters to Harry Potter: From Around the World

Compiled by Bill Adler, Author, Bill Adler, Jr., Compiled by Running Press Book Publishers $18 (160p) ISBN 978-0-7867-0890-1
In the opening of Kids' Letters to Harry Potter from Around the World, editor Bill Adler says, ""Kids from all over the world sent us letters. Some came via e-mail, some by conventional mail. Some were collected by teachers and librarians and sent to us in a bundle."" Adler does not explain how the letters were solicited or whether Potter author J.K. Rowling ever saw this ""unauthorized collection."" Interviews with the children break the monotony, but the absence of any organizing principle makes this book a thick read. (Aug.)
