All those Harry Potter fans craving more of our favourite bespectacled hero can rejoice: JK Rowling has officially announced a brand new short story series via Pottermore.

More shenanigans are expected at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, courtesy of a quartet of new eBooks.

The franchise takes inspiration from the British Library exhibition and its companion books, Harry Potter: A History of Magic.
