The Ickabog is a fairy tale by British author J. K. Rowling. Rowling described The Ickabog as "a story about truth and the abuse of power". It came to her "well over a decade ago", so she stressed that it "isn’t intended to be read as a response to anything that’s happening in the world right now". This book is set in an imaginary land unrelated to any of Rowling’s other works. During the lockdown, Rowling’s fans can read her latest book for free over on The Ickabog website.
J.K Rowling Born in Gloucestershire, England, the author led an amazing life full of adventures and excitement. The wizardess of magical potions had a life that was full of ups and down but the author never leads anything to come in her way of pursuing her dreams.
The seven-year period that followed saw the death of her mother, birth of her first child, divorce from her first husband, and relative poverty until the first novel in the series, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, was published in 1997. There were six sequels, of which the last was released in 2007.
Since then, Rowling has written several books for adult readers: The Casual Vacancy (2012) and—under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith, the crime fiction Cormoran Strike series. In 2020, her "political fairytale" for children, The Ickabog, was released in installments in an online version.
However, Rowling was enlisted as the first female billionaire novelist in 2011 but was later on removed from Forbes list after giving around £100 million to charity.
