Enjoy Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J. K. Rowling!
This is another Harry Potter book, which means Artemis the owl is not happy.
It might have something to do with me once considering naming him ‘Pigwidgeon’…
Once again, rereading these books as an adult has turned out to be both awesome and infuriating. Awesome because they’re still great and entertaining books, infuriating because I’m sounding more and more like Mrs Weasley for every book. These kids are totally irresponsible, but even worse: what kind of headmaster urges thirteen year old kids to go back in time, dodge a rabid werewolf, steal a hippogrif out from under the noses of law enforcement, just so they can fly around to save a convicted murderer from soul-eating monsters?!
Why don’t you do it yourself, you crazy old bat?!
I have some unresolved Dumbledore issues, yes.
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
by J. K. Rowling
When the Knight Bus crashes through the darkness and screeches to a halt in front of him, it’s the start of another far from ordinary year at Hogwarts for Harry Potter. Sirius Black, escaped mass-murderer and follower of Lord Voldemort, is on the run – and they say he is coming after Harry. In his first ever Divination class, Professor Trelawney sees an omen of death in Harry’s tea leaves . But perhaps most terrifying of all are the Dementors patrolling the school grounds, with their soul-sucking kiss.

Oh man, I LOVE that cover! So pretty. Don’t tell Artemis, but if I were to ever get an owl, it would TOTALLY be named Pigwidgeon. And at least Mrs. Weasley is an awesome character. There are worse characters in the Potter-verse to start sounding like… 😉
The covers for this edition are just brilliant, but I think this is my favorite one. It’s even prettier than my photography skills capture!
And replace Pigwidgeon’s happiness with Artemis’s anger, and they’re very alike. Both hyperactive, tiny owls with delusions.
I love Mrs Weasley, but I’m just not ready to be her yet! I would like to stay a Hermione for some stay…
“Hyperactive tiny owls with delusions.” Love it. And so accurate! (Well, for Pigwidgeon, anyway. I’ll have to take your word on Artemis as you know him and I do not.) 😉
Okay, fair. I get not being ready to turn into Mrs. Weasley. At least Hermione from book one says similar cautionary things?
Yes, she is sensible, but not a complete mother-hen.
