This issue’s cover is from J K Rowling's Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, the third book in what is already a classic new series. The first two titles were Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Thanks to Bloomsbury Children’s Books for their help.

A light and entertaining story to amuse young developing readers. Jess unenthusiastically accompanies her friend, Flo, to a newly formed ballet class. When she realises that stuck-up archrival Primrose Pettifer is enrolling too, Jess is even more reluctant to go. However, when she discovers the decidedly witch-like characteristics of the ballet teaching sisters, Angelica and Ethel Twirl, dancing begins to take on a new dimension. The plot engages the reader as Jess and Flo struggle to prevent Primrose Pettifer from spilling the beans about the Miss Twirls’s secret to the Community Centre manager.
Printed on glossy paper, there are attractive half or full page colour illustrations on every spread which capture perfectly the mischievous magic of the Miss Twirls.
