The Harry Potter prequel is an 800-word story written by J. K. Rowling, and was published online on 11 June 2008. Set about three years before the birth of Harry Potter, the story recounts an adventure experienced by Sirius Black and James Potter.
I came across this thanks to taking part in The Deja Vu Review as it was one of the stories reviewed by the host and had to give it a read. It is a very short story and the plot doesn’t really develop into anything that will blow your mind away, or even really want to make you want to pick up any of the Harry Potter books themselves, but is just a little snippet of life for James and Sirius before Harry Potter. I have to say I enjoyed reading it but I think something a bit longer would have been a lot better.
