potter spawns parody part II
by Kevin O'Flynn for The St Petersburg Times

MOSCOW - First came "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone." Then, as if by magic, appeared a Russian version, "Tanya Grotter and Her Magic Double Bass."

Now, another Russian twist in the tale is set to join Harry and Tanya. "Porri Gatter and the Stone Philosopher," a deliberate parody of the bestselling J.K. Rowling books, is set to hit bookstores at the end of the week.

Belarussian authors Ivan Mytko and Andrei Zhvalevsky are behind the book, which turns Harry Potter from a child with magic powers who lives among ordinary humans to a child with no powers who lives among magicians and has to use technology to survive.

In the first chapter of the book, instead of using a wand - as Harry Potter would to face off against his archenemy Voldemort - Porri Gatter uses a more human mortar to ward off his archenemy, Mordevolt.

Ballet school changes Potter-like routine
Associated Press
There'll be no wave of the magic Harry Potter wand for the 3-year-old students of a ballet school in southern England.
