Handwritten Harry Potter prequel stolen in burglary

J.K. Rowling gives fans a treat with the launch of the World Wide Wizarding Book Club

Fans of Rowling know the author jotted down her initial idea for the series on a napkin, and that she wrote the first installment, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, on a typewriter. He also swiped a stack of jewelry from the same home, all of which happened some time between April 13 and 24.

Ms Rowling shared a police message about the theft with her 10 million Twitter followers, adding: "Please don't buy this if you're offered it".

The work is considered "extremely valuable", obviously, and is written on both sides of an A5 card, coming in at 800 words. "We are appealing to anyone who sees, or is offered this item for sale, to contact police".

Gear up for a rollarcoaster ride, "Harry Potter" fans, there's a wizarding prequel out in the world, and authorities need your help to find it.

The Potter document was stolen along with a quantity of jewellery from the property on Howard Road in Birmingham's Kings Heath district. "T$3 he owner supported writers' freedoms by bidding for it".

Look, we love Harry Potter news as much as the next person. The antics of Harry's father James, Sirius Black, Remus Lupin, and Peter Pettigrew existed at the fringes of the novels and have been the subject of hundreds upon hundreds of fanfics.

The first of these films came out in November of previous year and told the story of Hufflepuff Newt Scamander and his journey to New York City.

The owner of the one of a kind Harry Potter prequel claimed to not be that big of a Harry Potter fan and that he just wanted the money to go to those less fortunate.

It was stolen in April, but police have yet to find any leads, so they chose to appeal to "Harry Potter" lovers.
