I fell in love with this series as a child, and bought this set on an impulse to evoke those tingly, nostalgic feels. BUT to my dismay, they arrived with updated cover art does not match what the image shows - I attached what arrived for reference. However, it does feature the original art inside, but I mainly wanted these books for the original cover art. My love of the sea and cats were the inspiration for Fog Cat.
My enthusiasm for antiques and intriguing old buildings and a similar childhood experience resulted in Boathouse Treasure. A combination of the fascination of a country fair and a child's ingenuity led to The Boy, the Dollar, and the Wonderful Hat. McGratt and the Ornery Cat was inspired by my own twenty-year-old very ornery feline. Fossils, dinosaurs, and the possibility of making a fabulous find were the influences for Dinosaurs on the Beach. The story ocombines my love of Christmas with my belief in the creativity and optimism of children, even when they are going through a difficult time.

He was truly the bravest man we knew. Dear Snape, Almost 2 decades ago, at the home of magic, you walked in and changed everything we thought people could ever stand for. From the evil grandson of Doom to the carer who hid behind the veil of darkness, Severus, you are an inspiration, beyond what words can measure and put on paper. To getting under our skins to seemingly wanting to destroy Harry, you taught us how the most loyal always protect us, in silence.
In the blips of prejudice and all things said and done, as summer after summer passed, we gradually fell in love with you, Severus, slowly learning how one man can defy himself for the love he could never get, against all the odds that stood in his way. The first words you asked Harry were - "What would I get if I added powdered root of Asphodel to an infusion of wormwood? Snape, twenty winters ago, you entered our hearts and taught us, over time, more than anyone else, how to love - selflessly, without want, demand or inhibition, just love, because of human emotions, that, is the single most powerful of all.
You loved Lily and you watched her die, in your arms and you promised to keep Harry safe. And you did, paying with your own life, selling your soul to the devil, in doing so. You went against the world for a love that never was, because as Harry put it, you, were the bravest man we ever knew.
And you know, years later, sitting on a rocking chair somewhere across the globe, we will have our children talking about the boy who lived and they'll find us tearing up, remembering how once we grew up in a magical universe, now lost, inside us. Padfoot was the tragic hero of the series. The 4 Marauders, managed mischief better than the Weasley twins.
Black, was also the Godfather of Harry, who was falsely convicted of the murder of Harry's Parents and served 13 years in Azkaban before escaping. He was killed by a killing curse at the hands of his own cousin, Bellatrix Lestrange during the Battle at the Ministry of Magic. Sirius, I tried to find an owl that would reach you. To be fair, the fictional afterlife is a far, far place to go, and none of the owls were very willing.
You may not know this, but the internet has actually kept you alive, long after that fateful day in the Department of Mysteries. In the form of Tumblr posts, head cannons and memes. The boy cheering on James on the Quidditch field, and many years later, the dog watching Harry from the stands. The man who was freed after 13 years of wrongful imprisonment, only to be greeted with a life in hiding. But I, like so many others, know you as a hero. More of a hero than most other witches and wizards; and I sleep knowing that in some fictional afterlife, you have an eternity to spend with James, Lupin, and Lily.
Your life and death were both spent in allegiance. The golden trio gave me a chance to be a better person: Harry gave me courage, Ron gave me loyalty, and Hermione gave me intellect.
