About the Author

J. K. (Joanne Kathleen) Rowling was born in Gloucestershire, U. K. on July 31, 1965. She also writes fiction novels under the name of Robert Galbraith. Rowling attended Tutshill Primary and then went on to Wyedean Comprehensive where she was made Head Girl in her final year. She received a degree mostrar mais in French from Exeter University. She later took some teaching classes at Moray House Teacher Training College and a teacher-training course in Manchester, England. This extensive education created a perfect foundation to spark the Harry Potter series that Rowling is renowned for. After college, Rowling moved to London to work for Amnesty International, where she researched human rights abuses in Francophone Africa, and worked as a bilingual secretary. In 1992, Rowling quit office work to move to Portugal and teach English as a Second Language. There she met and married her husband, a Portuguese TV journalist. But the marriage dissolved soon after the birth of their daughter. It was after her stint teaching in Portugal that Rowling began to write the premise for Harry Potter. She returned to Britain and settled in Edinburgh to be near her sister, and attempted to at least finish her book, before looking for another teaching job. Rowling was working as a French teacher when her book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone was published in June of 1997 and was an overnight sensation. Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone won the British Book Awards Children's Book of the Year, was shortlisted for the Guardian Fiction Award, and received a Commended citation in the Carnegie Medal awards. She also received 8,000 pounds from the Scottish Arts Council, which contributed to the finishing touches on The Chamber of Secrets. Rowling continued on to win the Smarties Book Prize three years in a row, the only author ever to do so. At the Bologna Book Fair, Arthur Levine from Scholastic Books, bought the American rights to Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone for the unprecedented amount of $105,000.00. The book was retitled Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone for it's American release, and proceeded to top the Best Seller's lists for children's and adult books. The American edition won Best of the Year in the School Library Journal, Publishers Weekly, Parenting Magazine and the Cooperative Children's Book Center. It was also noted as an ALA Notable Children's Book as well as Number One on the Top Ten of ALA's Best Books for Young Adults. The Harry Potter Series consists of seven books, one for each year of the main character's attendance at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. All of the books in the series have been made into successful movies. She is number 1 on the Hollywood Reporter's '25 Most Powerful Authors' 2016 list. She has also written Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Quidditch Through the Ages, and The Tales of Beedle the Bard. She won the 2016 PEN/Allen Foundation Literary Service Award. In 2016 she, along with Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, published the script of the play Harry Potter and the cursed child. It became an instant bestseller. Rowling's first novel for an adult audience,The Casual Vacancy, was published by Little Brown in September 2012. She made The New York Times Best Seller List with her title Very Good Lives: The Fringe Benefits of Failure and the Importance of Imagination. She published two bestselling fiction novels under the name of Robert Galbraith: The Cuckoo's Calling and The Silkworm. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

«E ali estava no céu, suspensa sobre a escola: a caveira verde flamejante com língua de serpente, a marca que os Devoradores da Morte deixavam para trás sempre que entravam num edifício… sempre que matavam…»
Quando DUMBLEDORE chega a Privet Drive durante uma noite de verão para recolher Harry Potter, a mão com que segura a varinha está ENEGRECIDA e mirrada, mas ele não revela o motivo.
Segredos e SUSPEITAS espalham-se pelo mundo da feitiçaria e nem mesmo Hogwarts está a salvo. Harry está convicto de que Malfoy tem a MARCA NEGRA: a prova de que existe um Devorador da Morte entre eles. Harry vai precisar de magia PODEROSA e de amigos verdadeiros à medida que vai descobrindo os segredos mais terríveis de VOLDEMORT, enquanto Dumbledore o prepara para enfrentar o seu DESTINO...… (mais)

[…] partilhas os pensamentos e as emoções do Senhor das Trevas. O diretor pensa que tal estado de coisas não deve continuar e deseja que eu te ensine a fechar a tua mente ao Senhor das Trevas.
Vivem-se TEMPOS NEGROS em Hogwarts. Depois do ATAQUE dos Dementors ao seu primo Dudley, Harry Potter sabe que Voldemort fará TUDO para o encontrar. Muitos negam o regresso do Senhor das Trevas, mas Harry não está sozinho: uma ORDEM SECRETA reúne-se em Grimmauld Place para lutar contra as forças do mal. Harry tem de permitir que o professor Snape o ensine a PROTEGER-SE dos assaltos brutais de Voldemort à sua mente. Mas os ataques vão sendo cada vez mais INTENSOS e Harry está a ficar sem tempo...… (mais)

Relançamento do quarto volume da série Harry Potter com as imagens de capa da editora Bloomsbury pela primeira vez em Portugal.
«- […] Haverá três tarefas, distribuídas ao longo do ano escolar, que porão à prova os campeões de diversasmaneiras… os seus feitos mágicos… a sua ousadia… os seus poderes de dedução e, é claro, a sua capacidadede enfrentar o perigo.»
O torneio dos três feiticeiros vai realizar-se em Hogwarts. Apenas os feiticeiros com mais de dezassete anos estão autorizados a participar, mas isso não impede Harry de sonhar que irá vencer a competição.
Depois, no Dia das Bruxas, quando o Cálice de Fogo faz a sua seleção, é com espanto que harry descobre que é um dos escolhidos. Enfrentará desafios onde terá de arriscar a própria vida, dragões, feiticeiros das Trevas, mas com a ajuda dos seus melhores amigos, Ron e Hermione, é possível que consiga chegar ao fim vivo!
