J.K. Rowling loves nine-year-old boy’s illustration of her book. Calls it ‘Utterly Wonderful’

As J. K. Rowling announced her children’s fairytale, The Ickabog, she also threw open a competition. Children from all around the globe were asked to illustrate scenes from the fairytale that was being published online and would later be made into a book. One such child, Arlo Kearns, sent in his illustration and gathered praise from the author herself.

Arlo Kearns is a nine-year-old pupil at Boughton Heath Academy. He is a keen writer and illustrator of ‘mad storybooks’. When his mum Tamzin Harris learned that the Harry Potter author was releasing a new fairytale book online for free and asking children to send in their illustrations of it, she thought it was the perfect opportunity for him to show off his talent. And she was completely right!

J.K. Rowling was quite impressed with the little one’s work of art. It was a map of the country of Cornucopia from the book. Check out her tweet and Arlo’s drawing :
