J.K. Rowling’s next book will be for kids

At the Cheltenham Literature Festival, J.K. Rowling said that she’ll be returning to the children’s section for her next book.

“I think probably the next thing I write, or the next thing I publish, will be for children.” she said.

She told fans that she had a “number of ideas on my laptop”, but wouldn’t reveal the details about what she has been working on.

The award winner also said that the book would be for “younger children than the Harry Potter series.”

The sales numbers for The Casual Vacancy, Rowling’s first novel since the Harry Potter finale in 2007, have been ‘respectable.’
