HARRY Potter fans were swept up in the magic of a little bit extra yesterday.
Pottermore published an article releasing J.K.Rowling's short story looking at the lives of the Harry Potter characters many years on.
Bendigo resident and long-standing fan of the series, Monika Bell, said it was a great addition to a much-loved story.
Ms Bell said she would be signing up to the Pottermore site to have a read of the 1500-word story.
"I started reading the books when they were first published," Ms Bell said.
"I was hoping I would get a letter from Hogwarts.
"It makes me sad that the next generation of children won't have a series this great to follow."
