J.K. Rowling is releasing four new Harry Potter stories

J. K. Rowling is set to release four new Harry Potter books next month.

The author, 53, will unveil the eBook shorts on her digital platform Pottermore on June 27.

She said fans would have the chance to ‘delve deeper into the rich history of magic’.

The four bitesize Harry Potter stories will be themed around lessons Harry and his friends studied at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

They include Charms, Defence Against the Dark Arts, Potions, Herbology, Divination, Astronomy and Care of Magical Creatures.

While they won’t follow the adventures of Harry Potter, the new books will, according to Pottermore, explore ‘origins of magic through history and folklore’ and ‘feature notes, manuscript pages and charming sketches’.

The first two books, Harry Potter: A Journey Through Charms and Defence Against the Dark Arts and Harry Potter: A Journey Through Potions and Herbology will be released on June 27.

The third and fourth books – Harry Potter: A Journey Through Divination and Astronomy and Harry Potter: A Journey Through Care of Magical Creatures – will be released soon after.

The eBooks are just £1.99 each and will initially be available in English, French, Italian and German.
