The Harry Potter series was composed by J.K. Rowling and consists of seven novels.
The Harry Potter books span Harry’s seven years in the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and several characters appear in all seven books, although their relationships with Harry transform as they grow old. For example, Ron Weasley’s little sister Ginny begins as a peripheral character but becomes Harry’s love interest by the finish of the series.
The Harry Potter collection was adapted by Warner Brothers into eight movies, which were released from 2001 to 2011.
