  JK gives Potter 6 hint at kids' reading
Updated 26 June 2003, 16.12
JK Rowling meets her fans at the Royal Albert Hall
JK Rowling has given a tiny hint of what's to come in the sixth Harry Potter book.

The top author was at the Royal Albert Hall to give a rare reading from Order of the Phoenix to 4,000 young fans.

She told Newsround's Lizo Mzimba that she was still writing the sixth instalment.

No title clue

"There's a teeny hint of what's coming in book six from the reading I'm doing today," she said.

But JK refused to tell us what the title of the book is.

Ohhh!

'Fever pitch'

Thousands of excited children from all over the country were packed in the Albert Hall in London to see their heroine in person.

They had to get their schools to enter a public ballot, and the lucky schools were chosen at random.

"The excitement has reached fever pitch," a BBC reporter told us. "It's absolutely crazy. Every time a TV camera sweeps past, the kids go mad, shouting and screaming."

The Albert Hall was specially decorated for the event, and the staff were dressed in Hogwarts' robes.

The Order of the Phoenix was released on Saturday 21 June and has already become the fastest-selling book in history.
