Scholastic has recently released an image of the first in seven upcoming covers, one for each book, which will all be released periodically. The first cover released is for Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s/Sorceror’s stone, depicting Harry’s first time exploring Diagon Alley with Hagrid.

“Ratvocats” part 2!! For part 1, see here

Rats are intelligent, affectionate, clean animals. They have a bad rap because of the actions and reputations of their wild cousins but they make amazing pets that love to play, learn tricks, and cooperate for photoshoots :) Domestic rats are used extensively in scientific testing that saves and improves millions of human and animal lives. Their wild African cousins are used to sniff out landmines to make our world a safer place. Rats follow us wherever we go and the similarities between our species and theirs are striking. Before you judge a rat for it’s name, get to know one and I guarantee your opinion of them will improve!

When I was a kid my Dad came upon a truckload of cellophane and he wanted me to help him sell it. So I was taking it to the kids at school, trying to sell it to my teachers. I went and stood in front of the supermarket. I had a fantasy that one day someone would buy all of it. That some guy would just come along and be like ‘I’ll take em all’ It never happened. So I was walking out of Ralph’s one day and I saw these kids trying to sell these cookies and I was like yeah, I’ll take them all. So I bought hundreds and hundreds of boxes. I didn’t realize how many boxes I was going to have. I had a car full of them. I didn’t know what to do so I started just like throwing them out the window to people on the street. [*]
