Author teases fans of young wizard with series of tweets, saying they are ‘something to ponder while I’m away’


Could it be a spell? Or maybe a potion? Or might it just be the big announcement that many Harry Potter fans have been hoping for? Author JK Rowling has tweeted an anagram that has led many to speculate that “Harry returns”.

However, there were also claims, fuelled by Rowling herself, that the answer has more to do with a spin-off involving the fictional ‘magizoologist’ Newt Scamander, author of one of Harry’s textbooks, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them in the first Potter book.

On Monday morning, Rowling posted the puzzle for fans to solve, before teasing them with the message “something to ponder while I’m away X”.

“Cry, foe! Run amok! Fa awry! My wand won’t tolerate this nonsense.” read her cryptic tweet. Speculation soon started on sites such as Reddit and Twitter, with many fans noticing that the letters were an anagram of the phrase: “Harry Returns! Won’t say any details now! A week off! No comment.”
