Potty about Potter

The world had never heard of Hogwarts, Quidditch or Voldemort until Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone was published in 1997. To celebrate Harry's 15th anniversary, publisher Bloomsbury is looking for the UK's biggest Harry Potter fan.

In a letter of no more than 50 words, fans should explain why they love Potter. Letters must be posted in one of the tailor-made postboxes in bookshops and libraries throughout the UK. The most creative and entertaining submission will win a family holiday to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando and a leather-bound, signed copy of the first Potter book (15th anniversary edition).
