One year since we first met The Ickabog

It’s been one year since J.K. Rowling’s fairy tale The Ickabog was first serialised here on Since it was introduced to the world, The Ickabog has grown into a truly international phenomenon, a world-wide bestseller now available in 26 languages.

Thanks to the success of The Ickabog book, royalties from sales have enabled J.K. Rowling’s Charitable Trust Volant to donate to over 35 charities to help vulnerable groups particularly affected by the Covid-19 pandemic – most recently, the British Asian Trust and Khalsa Aid to support their Covid-19 relief work in India.

Join us in celebrating the first anniversary since we met this endearing, mythical monster.
