JK Rowling is Up to No Good... for a Good Reason

Today, we are happy to report that J.K. Rowling has been up to no good....for a good reason. The Harry Potter author paid a visit to a hospital in Edinburgh, Scotland, where she brought cheer in the form of unique graffiti on the walls of the unit. The Scotsman writes: "Ms Rowling, 43, daubed graffiti on the walls of the Young People's Unit at the Royal Edinburgh Hospital in Morningside, which cares for teenagers with complex psychiatric conditions.

Consultant psychologist Dr Jane Morris said: "She really does spread magic. She's a natural and knows how to talk to young people. And she's extremely cool. She does graffiti on the walls which is probably worth a fortune.

"She's drawn all of us and wrote 'JK Rowling was here'.
...
And her way with the capital's troubled teens impressed staff.

Dr Morris said: "I'd offer her a job any time as she's already a great therapist."

We at TLC think that Peeves certainly would approve!

This is awesome. I hope this isn’t wrong to say, but in a way she reminds me of Princess Dianna. They both had a gift with children.

Guess That Book

Neville had heaved himself over the back of the next thestral and was now attempting to swing one short leg over the creature's back. Luna was already in place, sitting sidesaddle and adjusting her robes as though she did this every day.
