Author J.K. Rowling has been busy during the quarantine finishing up an old project. Years ago she started writing a fairy tale called The Ickabog... some hand written and some typed up. She put it away for a long time, but recently revisited it. She's finished it and is releasing it online for free!
And she wants kids to illustrate it! She said, "I’ll be suggesting ideas for pictures as we go, but nobody should feel constrained by my ideas. Let your imaginations run wild! The best pictures in each publishing territory will be included in the books we intend to publish in November 2020."
The first two chapters of the story are available on the book's website right now, and she'll release a new chapter each day!
