Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

by Ken Houghton

I've been thinking about doing a post on Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, which I am currently reading to Valerie (we finished the previous four books of the series), and which is much less whiny when read aloud than it did on first read-through. (It still pales compared to the Sixth Book, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, which replaced the second as the Best of Series, and reminded me why Teresa Nielsen-Hayden once threatened to kill me if I told her that who died in HP and the Goblet of Fire.)

Not since finding Andy Serkis's Acceptance Speech in the Special Edition DVD of The Two Towers have the instructions for finding something been so interesting:
If you go to [Joanne Katherine Rowling's] home page, click on the eraser and you will be taken to a room -- you'll see a window, a door and a mirror.

In the mirror, you'll see a hallway. Click on the farthest doorknob and look for the Christmas tree. They click on the center of the door next to the mirror and a wreath appears. Then click on the top of the mirror and you'll see a garland.

Look for a cobweb next to the door. Click on it, and it will disappear. Now, look at the chimes in the window. Click on the second chime to the right, and hold it down. The chime will turn into the key, which opens the door. Click on the wrapped gift behind the door, then click on it again and figure out the title yourself by playing a game of hangman.

Or you can just take Scholastic's word for it.

You also need the current version of Flash; the rest of us will have to take Scholastic's word for it.
