Harry Potter Mania

The Princess is obsessed with Harry Potter. She's currently reading Book 3 - Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.

People worry about whether or not these books are too "dark" for her. They could be, I suppose, but I wonder how much of that she actually processes. This may be a poor guideline to follow, but I figure that as long as she's not having nightmares it's OK. She really loved reading "Goosebump" books during the school year, but every once in a while she'd have bad dreams about them, so I'd make her stop for a few weeks.

Anyway, she loves the "magic" of Harry Potter. The Princess can be found running around the house in her invisibility cloak, and loves to pretend that she is Hermione Granger. She has a magic wand, and loves to cast spells. She also is keen to turn whoever is available into other characters of the story. The Dragon has been known to play the role of "Fluffy" and guard the Sorcerer's Stone, or, Hagrid's lovable dog, Fang. She refers to her school as Hogwarts, and loves to pretend that she's riding the "Hogwarts Express."

I love her imagination.
