每日英語跟讀 Ep.878: About books -JK Rowling to publish fairy tale free for locked-down children JK

The creator of the "Harry Potter" books JK Rowling said on Tuesday she would release a free online serialisation of a bed-time story she wrote for her children 10 years ago.

哈利波特系列著作的作者JK羅琳週二表示,她將在網路上免費釋出10年前寫給孩子的床邊故事集。

Rowling said she decided to pull "The Ickabog" story "down from the attic" and publish it for children forced to stay at home during the coronavirus lockdown.

羅琳表示,她決定把《The Ickabog》從閣樓裡拉出來,出版給因為武漢肺炎封鎖令,被迫待在家裡的孩子們。

She would post the first two chapters on a dedicated website on Tuesday, with 34 further instalments released each weekday until July 10.

她會在週二將前2章放在專屬網站上,其他34章會在7月10日前每週刊出。

"The Ickabog" is unrelated to any of Rowling’s other previous works, though she noted it was penned "in fits and starts" between her "Harry Potter" books.

《The Ickabog》與羅琳以前的其他作品沒有關聯,儘管這部作品是在出版《哈利波特》期間開始動筆的。

She then intends to publish the story in English in November and other languages later on. All royalties will be given to projects assisting groups particularly affected by the pandemic.

她打算在今年11月以英文與其他語言出版這部故事。所有版稅都會捐給援助團體的計畫,尤其是受武漢肺炎大流行影響的團體。
