As we all know, children ask the best questions. And sometimes they get the best answers. Speaking at the White House Easter Egg Roll yesterday, Harry Potter author J. K. Rowling answered a child's query about another Harry Potter book with a "maybe."
While Rowling said that she has no immediate plans to write any more Potter books, she didn't rule the possibility out altogether. Instead, she suggested that "maybe 10 years from now" it could happen.
She also told one child she does want to write more books, adding that, "I'm quite sure in the not-too-distant future I will bring out another book."
