JK Rowling has surprised fans with the announcement of a brand new children's book, which she is publishing in daily instalments on her website for free.

 

The Ickabog is her first children's story not to be linked to Harry Potter. She wrote it over a decade ago for her own children and has now dusted it off.

 

It's for "children on lockdown, or even those back at school during these strange, unsettling times", she said.

 

She had previously referred to it only as an unnamed "political fairytale".

Yeah, I think so too. Sounds a little bit like the scandinavian counties mixed with German but it is not that.
