Harry Potter has performed his best magic trick so far after a young boy with leukaemia was 'kept alive' by his love for the books.
Nicolas Twynham of Caerphilly, Wales, was so desperate to know more about the continuing adventures of the teenage wizard that his family think it gave him the will to live.
The 11-year-old was struggling with the disease when his mum Michelle gave him a copy of The Philosopher's Stone.
He was so addicted to finding out what came next that he was able to stop thinking about his illness and also the chemotherapy needed to beat the disease.
And when Nicolas was well enough to leave hospital he had another surprise waiting for him.
Meal with JK Rowling
That was a meal with Potter author JK Rowling at her house in Scotland, although her magical skills with words didn't extend to the kitchen.
She cooked chicken for Nicolas, without knowing he was a vegetarian, so JK had to go out to buy his favourite meal spaghetti instead.
