Now Accepting Magic School Enrollments
Harry Potter, Monster Academy, the School for Good and Evil, Storybound … what is it about magic schools that we find so appealing? When I was in school I was convinced that one of my teachers was a vampire and that another one was a T-rex. I didn’t need no magic wand or golden snitch or monster hunting stick.
It wasn’t that Harry Potter wasn’t around. I was still in primary school when Potter first flew onto the scene. My friends would talk for hours about Hogwarts and magic and castles. Potter did nothing for me, but oh how I used to dream that I could dream of being in a magic school.
How about you? Were you (are you) are Harry Potter fan? There is, these days, more books about magic schools than there is about the standard reality non-magic ones. If you’ve navigated the labyrinth of these many works, I want to know about it. I’m putting together a Magic School Month for the site (with videoooooos!) and your information could really help. If you know of any magic school books, or have written one yourself, let me know.
Think of it as showing around the new kid.
