The first two chapters released on Tuesday introduce a fictional land called Cornucopia, led by the foolish king. It is a scarcely-populated region at the most northern end of the magically prosperous state, known for its legend of The Ickabog.
He told me that the idea of writing this story came while she was writing Harry Potter. Rowling said that while getting up after having dinner a few weeks ago, I thought why not give a surprise to the children in the current era? In this way, I decided on the same day that I would take it to the children soon.
