Written by admin

Russian works are not so popular, but no less interesting.

Today, May 2, fans from around the world celebrate the International Day of Harry Potter – the famous boy wizard who survived a fight with the strongest dark wizard Voldemort. A series of novels about magic, written by British writer Joan Rowling, quickly gained popularity and won the love of fans around the world. The Harry Potter saga is perhaps the most popular children’s book on magic, but it is certainly not the only one. We have selected for you 5 books by Russian authors that are no worse than a British work.

The first book about a boy wizard with a lightning scar on his forehead was published in 1997. Instantly she had fans, who were called potteromans. Each book told about the events that happened to the heroes during the school year. Fans grew up with the guys from the fairy tale. In the end, the same boy wizard, who turned into a strong good magician, defeats the main villain Voldemort. Good triumphs over evil, but at the cost of the lives of many good heroes who died in the great battle of wizards. At the behest of Joan Rowling, the victory of light over darkness takes place on May 2.

There are rumors among fans that the 75th Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, David Cameron, has become an ardent Potter fan. And he also “blessed” the Potter novels for the holiday.

– We have decided to officially declare May 2 as an international holiday, in honor of the date when the main character of the Rowling books Harry Potter struck Lord Voldemort. We hope that children and adults will remember the strong and courageous character of Harry Potter on this day, as well as what Rowling did for society, – as if Cameron said.

In fact, there is no evidence that the former prime minister spoke about it, as in principle, that the words were said. However, Harry’s fans do not mind raising their wands in honor of the fallen heroes of the book every May 2.
