As the world is still mostly in lockdown because of Covid-19, nothing gives us more pleasure than to hear of new storybooks that can keep us engaged and transport us to a different world - and who better to do the honour than famed author of Harry Potter -- JK Rowling?

JK Rowling announced that she is going to publish her latest children's book, a fairytale named 'The Ickabog' in a serialized form online so children in Covid-19 lockdown can read it for free online.

She made the big announcement on Twitter and on her own website on Tuesday and said that the first chapter would go up on the very day in a couple of hours. 'The Ickabog' will be published traditionally as a book in November 2020.

"The story will be made available for free, a chapter or two at a time, on its own website, which will go live in about an hour. This isn't the ebook, which will come in November with the hard copy books," Rowling wrote on Twitter.

She said she will be posting around one to three chapters every week from May 26 to July 10 on the website created for 'The Ickabog'.
