Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In the opening of Kids' Letters to Harry Potter from Around the World, editor Bill Adler says, "Kids from all over the world sent us letters. Some came via e-mail, some by conventional mail. Some were collected by teachers and librarians and sent to us in a bundle." Adler does not explain how the letters were solicited or whether Potter author J.K. Rowling ever saw this "unauthorized collection." Interviews with the children break the monotony, but the absence of any organizing principle makes this book a thick read.

From School Library Journal

Gr 4-6-The letters in this compilation were collected by Adler with the help of booksellers around the world. The authors hail from New Zealand, Ireland, Germany, and the U.S., among other places. Some write about their own lives and hometowns, while others imagine wizard existences for themselves and write to Harry Potter as peers. Their excitement for and love of the novels are apparent. Many of the letters are accompanied by follow-up interviews with the youngsters, and here is where the collection runs into problems. The interviews are so similar that they quickly become monotonous, and the answers to the interview questions often repeat what the letters say. In addition, the black-and-white illustrations are somewhat bizarre animation drawings and, after the first two or three, have nothing to do with any character in the series. Most fans would probably prefer that libraries save their money and buy extra copies of volume five when it comes out. Sharon Moore's We Love Harry Potter! (St. Martin's, 2001), which includes recipes, games, and letters, offers more variety and fun.

It's great that people are finally listening to the kids point of views. Its the kids who made this series popular in the first place and then it spread to the parents and to other adults. Without these loyal fans, this series would not have been so popular and its about time that they get some credit for it.

This is a very cute book, and a quick read.

Although the letters from the kids were sometimes adorable, the "interview" sections with some of the kids who wrote letters were all identical which was really tiresome. Surely the person who compiled all these letters could have thought of a few different questions for each kid.

The letters were cute though... kids say the craziest things =)
