Article published in Children's Literature

My article "On the Margins of Harry's World: Paratext and The Tales of Beedle the Bard" has been published in volume 51 of Children's Literature. In it, I argue that J.K. Rowling's The Tales of Beedle the Bard (2008) uses paratext to align Harry Potter's Wizarding world with the extradiegtetic readers' world. Doing so may aim at extending the novels' theme of connection, but, my article contends, it complicates that theme by emphasizing readers' status as marginalized from the magical realm.
