Jessica Adams, who, together with Laura Harris, Anna Fienberg and Tamara Sheward, created Kids' Night In 3, an anthology of short stories, poems, recipes, illustrations and more in aid of the international children's charity War Child, is concerned people may have gotten the wrong impression from recent news coverage of J.K. Rowling being involved in the project.
Jessica told Wizard News, "It's great that people are so excited that J.K. Rowling is on board as a contributor to this new book in the series. I'd like to correct the false impression that Ms. Rowling has written a new original short story for us, though. Along with other VIP guests, she has chosen her favourite poem to share with us, which we're thrilled to reproduce in the collection."
Kids' Night In 3 will be published by Puffin in Australia in September, and all royalties go to War Child. The favourite poem J.K.Rowling has chosen previously appeared in a UK anthology called Poems for Refugees, also in aid of War Child. For more about the charity, please visit www.warchild.org.uk.
