J.K. Rowling to release four new Harry Potter stories next month

Calling all Harry Potter fans!

J.K. Rowling will be treating us to four brand new Harry Potter stories at the end of next month, and we're very, very excited.

The new eBooks will be released on Pottermore – the author's immersive online world for everything to do with the books and films – on June 27.

The stories, which have been described as "bitesize", are themed on different Hogwarts lessons – Charms, Defence Against the Dark Arts, Potions, Herbology, Divination, Astronomy and Care of Magical Creatures.

They promise to "take you back in time once again to learn about the traditional folklore and magic at the heart of the Harry Potter stories".

London-based artist Rohan Daniel Eason has illustrated the eBooks.

They will follow a similar format to J.K. Rowling's previous 'extra content' stories Harry Potter – A History of Magic.

The Pottermore website states: "Prepare to delve deeper into the rich history of magic (be it our own Muggle history, or the magical world created by J.K. Rowling) with this new series of eBook shorts, inspired by the British Library exhibition and its companion books, Harry Potter: A History of Magic."

The stories are: Harry Potter: A Journey Through Charms and Defence Against the Dark ArtsHarry Potter: A Journey Through Potions and HerbologyHarry Potter: A Journey Through Divination and Astronomy , and  Harry Potter: A Journey Through Care of Magical Creatures ,.

The first Harry Potter book was released in 1997 and became a massive hit around the world.

The series contained seven books – one for each of Harry, Hermonie and Ron's time at Hogwarts – which were turned into eight blockbuster movies.

The story follows young wizard Harry, whose parents were killed by the evil Voldemort, as he discovers his magical powers and starts Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
