QUIZ: Can you correctly name all these spells from Harry Potter?

How old is Harry Potter? Today is his and J.K. Rowling's birthday

How old is Harry Potter? Today is his and J.K. Rowling's birthday

In 1998, Scholastic Inc. published "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone", the first book by a virtually unknown British author J.K. Rowling in the United States. Happy anniversary, Harry Potter!

"The event has brought together a family connected by a magical spell of witches and wizards", the Bookstore said in a statement.

Metro UK notes that you can also calculate the age of the "Boy Who Lived" based on a clue from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. While the Harry Potter series is special for a lot of reasons, one of the main points is that it provides fans with a sense of home.

For 10 years, Joanne K Rowling kept us hooked to the Harry Potter series.

The current cast of the London production features by Jamie Ballard as Harry Potter, Susie Trayling as Ginny Potter and Joe-Idris Roberts playing their son, Albus Potter. Overall, Rowling's wizarding series books have sold over 500 million copies worldwide, making it the most successful book series of all time, and have even been translated into as many as 65 languages over the years. The release order of the books was a huge thing.

How old is Harry Potter

Another tweeted: "Harry Potter is 38 years old". "Even today when I speak to people who have just read the books, I see the same love in their eyes as I had when I first read them". She says, "Harry Potter was the first book in my collection.it was the first book that I read after I finished my tenth".

The seven covers line up horizontally, creating essentially a long mural of characters and scenes from the entire series. "I started reading again with Harry Potter, and I still read the books back to back".

Without her vision and dedication to us, who knows what we'd be. Her completed manuscript was turned down by a number of publishers before she got a book deal with Bloomsbury Publishing in August 1996. "My father introduced me to this world".

A Metro staffer (the same one who correctly guessed Harry Potter's age) wrote upon meeting Parker, "He, too, went to boarding school at age 12 in Scotland, where Hogwarts is located somewhere in the Highlands".

Rowling also became the first billionaire author in history, but lost her billionaire title after she donated the majority of her income to charity.
