Short Stories from Hogwarts of Heroism, Hardship and Dangerous Hobbies

Book 1, Pottermore Presents

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books 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

Entertaining and Insightful Writing!

Nicely written, it provides an insightful look into the life and times of two beloved characters (Professor McGonnagal and Remus Lupin), one mysterious and puzzling character (Professor Trelawney), and clarification on one that I was always curious about (Professor Kettleburn). I was thoroughly entertained!

A glimpse into the unknown

I loved learning more about these characters and their backgrounds. To know that they had a life and a story of their own which reflected their choices and actions in life and made them into the characters I have come to love and some characters I didn't even know. I' m looking forward to whatever comes next in the magical wizard world!

Nice short read

I would have enjoyed learning more about Prof. Trelawney. The information on Prof. Mcgonagall was very interesting. Worth the $3
