These days, children often think of superheroes(超级英雄) as cute(帅气的), cool and strong supermen. A poor, short and thin boy wearing glasses may not interest the kids today. Yet in less than 4 years, Harry Potter has taken the world by the storm. J. K. Rowling, the writer of Harry Potter, was a British single mother out of work and living on money given to her by the government. One day, when she was on a long train trip，she had the idea for this book. She wrote the first book of the seven in the cafe with her baby daughter sleeping beside her. Last year, the fans welcomed the birth of the fourth by lining outside the bookstores. Today these books are still popular among people. Harry Potter is something more than fantasy (幻想). Rowling tries to tell the readers how things are not always what they seem to be. However, millions of the fans don’t care about such a lesson. They would like to spend many sleepless nights waiting in line for the fifth, the sixth and the seventh to come. For them, surprising stories of the little boy are what they want.
