JK Rowling Says Don't Buy Harry Potter Prequel - It Is Stolen



Police have issued an appeal after a rare Harry Potter prequel, handwritten by the author J K Rowling, was stolen during a burglary. The story, penned personally by Rowling over two sides of a 6 x  8 postcard is extremely valuable.

Police say the handwritten postcard was purchased to raise money for charity, and are hoping the appeal goes far and wide among Harry Potter fans throughout the world.

Investigating Officer PC Paul Jauncey said: "The only people who will buy this unique piece are true Harry Potter fans. We are appealing to anyone who sees, or is offered this item for sale ,to contact police."

“PLEASE DON’T BUY THIS IF YOU’RE OFFERED IT,” tweeted Rowling, 51. “Originally auctioned for @englishpen, the owner supported writers’ freedoms by bidding for it.”
