But I have limits, and honestly...the idea of Pottermore creeps me out.
Don't get me wrong, I think it's a brilliant marketing strategy for Rowling Inc., and I admire good business, but come on, when is enough enough already? Or is it just fickle me that thinks this way?
Irregardless, my attention has been stolen all of the sudden by a whole 'nother P-man. If its a fresh iteration on a magical English boy you're looking for, I've got an excellent recommendation for a series of books that scratches that middle grade fantasy itch. It doesn't get as deep and dark as the Harry Potter series (ahem, Suze) but it's got plenty of colorful and scary characters and is so much fun, not to mention hilarious.
I speak of the Peter and the Starcatchers series by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson. It's an alternative universe prequel to Peter Pan and answers all sorts of questions I've always had. If that's not enough to entice you---the stories include talking dolphins. Talking dolphins!
Barry and Pearson didn't intend to write a fourth book, but they had so many fans ask for it, they drummed up some fantastic inspiration and wrote Sword of Mercy. I'm not quite finished with it yet, but it's probably my favorite of the series.
