What did Harry Potter sneak past YOU?

You've read all of Harry Potter, now what? Is that really all there is? Well.... it just depends on how you look at it.

Considering J.K. Rowling's cleverness, it would be sad -- and also wrong -- to think we've fully deciphered all 4,000 pages of Rowling's Harry Potter books. Far from it! In fact, thanks to Rowling's humble genius, many of Harry's deepest secrets and veiled themes still remain completely unnoticed... by multitudes! Yet Rowling wasn't silent about Harry's secrets oh, no. Unbeknownst to most fans, Rowling spent 10 years fighting off the book-burners, and scattering a plethora of clues about Harry's true nature, and her real intentions. The problem is that they're buried in thousands of pages of interviews, hard-to-find transcripts, documentaries, and a very long trail of obscure clues, if anyone cared to follow them. What's a curious Potter fan to do?

Not to worry! Author Nancy Solon Villaluz already invested 5 years fervently researching it all for you, in ''Does Harry Potter Tickle Sleeping Dragons?'' It's the first Potter analysis actually seeking to help fans view Harry through the most interesting perspective of all: J.K. Rowling's eyes. Inside, you'll plunge into a challenging, in-depth analysis of Rowling's named influences, her interviews, and, of course, all of her Harry Potter books. You'll learn a myriad of surprising things about Harry and Rowling that most people never suspect, all-the-while tackling the long-ignored mysteries of Hogwarts' school motto. (Which is Latin for, ''Never Tickle a Sleeping Dragon.'')

Dull, dry research? Never! Bring your imagination on this thought-provoking journey of discovery. Travel paths, dodge dragons, and have tea as you examine oodlesof compelling evidence. Discover:
++ What surprising things influenced Harry...and how?
++ How does Rowling view herself, her writing, her success, and Harry?
++ Does Harry Potter actually promote witchcraft? How so... or how no?
++ What critical thing did Rowling finally admit was ''always obvious'' to her in the Harry Potter books... and why wasn't it so obvious to us?
++ Does Rowling view herself as an Atheist, a Christian, or something else... and what might that mean for Harry's readers?
++ What incredible secrets does Harry Potter still hold after all these years... and where's the proof?
++ Does Harry actually follow Rowling's no-tickling school motto advice? Or did Rowling have something else up her sleeve?

So whether you've read Harry Potter only once, or a dozen times, there is still so much more for you to discover... quietly lingering in the subtle depths of Harry Potter's own pages where few even suspect. Come look through Rowling's clues, and you will see the hidden treasure trove patiently waiting for anyone brave enough to approach the Sleeping Dragons' lair. Do you dare come along?

About the Author:

Nancy Solon Villaluz has been a Potter fan since 1999, but would rather not ''prattle on'' about herself here (feeling that any Gilderoy Lockhart-ish claims would only cause her readers a bit of nausea). Instead, she prefers to lavishly inform you about Harry & Rowling in,

Does Harry Potter Tickle Sleeping Dragons?

Since it will reveal much more important things to you in a much more compelling fashion.
