Short Stories from Hogwarts of Heroism, Hardship and Dangerous Hobbies

Book 1, Pottermore Presents

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


‘Minerva was the Roman goddess of warriors and wisdom. William McGonagall is celebrated as the worst poet in British history. There was something irresistible to me about his name, and the idea that such a brilliant woman might be a distant relative of the buffoonish McGonagall.’ – J.K. Rowling
Pottermore Presents is a collection of J.K. Rowling’s writing from the Pottermore archives: short reads originally featured on with some exclusive new additions. These eBooks, with writing curated by Pottermore, will take you beyond the Harry Potter stories as J.K. Rowling reveals her inspiration, intricate details of characters’ lives and surprises from the wizarding world.

These stories of heroism, hardship and dangerous hobbies profile two of the Harry Potter stories’ most courageous and iconic characters: Minerva McGonagall and Remus Lupin. J.K. Rowling also gives us a peek behind the closed curtains of Sybill Trelawney’s life, and you’ll encounter the reckless, magical-beast-loving Silvanus Kettleburn along the way.

Customer Reviews


Wow i loved every word especially as Mcgonagal and Lupin are 2 of my favourite characters, if you're a huge potter fan this ebook is a very big must and a necessity, thanks jk rowling amazing work as always x

A little gem.

Even though these are short stories and histories about specific teachers or encyclopaedic data about the Wizarding World in general, J.K. Rowling with her immense talent and wonderful imagination as a writer, never ceases to amaze.

Such in depth and sometimes moving knowledge about her character are a beauty to read, especially Remus Lupin, but more preferably Minerva McGonnagall.

Definitely worth a read, if it's a short one.


This book answered so many questions for me. Many of the teachers mentioned in this book I'd never taken much care to notice, but with the amount of detail put into everyone mentioned it really was an excellent story to have read
