J.K. Rowling’s 'The Ickabog' Coming in Fall
Scholastic has announced that it will publish J.K. Rowling’s new fairy tale, The Ickabog, on November 10 in the U.S. and Canada in hardcover and e-book formats. International editions will follow soon after. Rowling is donating royalties through her charitable trust, The Volant Trust, for groups that have been affected by the pandemic.
The book, which was first serialized for free online this summer, began more than 10 years ago as a bedtime story for Rowling’s children. The author launched an online contest inviting children from across the U.S. and Canada to submit illustrations, and the winning entries will be featured in the book.
