J.K. Rowling’s The Ickabog to be a book this autumn

The Ickabog, an original fairy tale by J.K. Rowling will be published in November in hardback, ebook and audio format in the English language with editions in other countries to follow soon after.

The Ickabog was first serialised this summer here on The Ickabog.com, during which children around the world were invited to send in their own illustrations of the story and its colourful characters. You can see some of them here. After an incredible response, the winners of each artwork competition will see their illustration  in the published book.

J.K. Rowling will be donating her royalties* from The Ickabog to The Volant Charitable Trust to assist those who have been particularly impacted by coronavirus.


* J.K. Rowling will be donating her net royalties to The Volant Charitable Trust, expected to be equivalent to a minimum of £2.00 for each copy of The Ickabog sold in the UK.

The Volant Charitable Trust is a registered charity in Scotland with charity number SC030790
