Sod that, just getting most 7 year olds to read a book is hell's own job.... if they want to read HP and stick to it, why shouldn't they? Bratling loves them, even though she's just 7. She saw the films and still wanted to read the books.

Besides, this is the child who was found one day watching 'the Mummy', and laughing at the 'juicy' skeleton.

And as Ms Rowling answered one parent who criticised the violence and horror that Harry goes through ~ If you think this book is scary, you ought to try real life one day.
