Dear Mr. Potter: Letters of Love, Loss, and Magic - Lily Zalon As someone whose life has been greatly impacted by Harry Potter, I knew as soon as I heard about this book that I would need a copy. There are those people who write Potter off as simply a children's book, but for those of us who cling to the series for hope, it is so much more than that. This is a wonderful collection of stories and pictures from Harry Potter fans of all ages, thanking their favourite characters or Jo Rowling herself for the influence they have on their lives. It's a must for anyone who counts themself as part of the Harry Potter fandom, and should be a must read for everybody who doubts the power of a fantasy story, and its effect on the world. The stories and letters themselves are emotional and powerful and the book is put together in such a beautiful way that I couldn't be prouder to have it on my shelf.
