Pressestimmen'Far and away, the single best piece of literary criticism on the Potter series has been Philip Nel's J". K. Rowling's Harry Potter Novels: A Reader's Guide"... there is an excellent list of recommended "further readings" ...along with classroom discussion questions (mostly for older students); there's also a very extensive and helpful list of Web sites that deal with the books... Nel's analyses are both insightful and helpful, citing a clear moral foundation throughout the series.' Trelease-on-reading.com
