  Harry doesn't promote witchcraft
Updated 26 June 2002, 09.19
Harry Potter
Charlotte argues that Harry is a good role model, not bad.

"I think the ideas that the Harry Potter books are promoting witchcraft are stupid.

It's ridiculous that people are claiming that Harry Potter makes witchcraft look fashionable - is caring for our world really such a bad thing?

Harry is brave, and sacrifices himself to help others.

Children reading Harry Potter books
He is a good role model because he isn't perfect, and because he experiences everyday feelings such as courage, love, fear and sadness.

Ron shows us how important family is, and Hermione is hardworking.

What's all the fuss about?

Loads of books have been written about witches and wizards, but none of them have kicked up such a fuss as Harry Potter.

The Worst Witch by Jill Murphy and Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien haven't caused problems, so what makes Potter so different?

It's simply because people are scared by the way that they've taken over the world!

I think that it's time the protesters looked beyond the covers, and search among the pages for the real story."

Charlotte, 13, Southampton
