British fiction writer J.K Rowling is well-known in world for her Harry Potter series; she has introduced readers to a magical world through her writings. She wrote a novel titled “The Ickabog” for children, during Covid-19 pandemic.

I recently went J.K Rowling’s fascinating novel The Ickabog. Her books are really mind blowing and amusing. In my opinion she is the best fiction writer and my favorite. I have read many books but Ickabog is the best of all. She had written the novel Ickabog with remarkable choice words, its characters, presentation, negations, chapter, title adventure, monster and each and everything is maintained and balanced nothing is more nor less.

In this marvelous novel Lord Flapoon, King Fred, Lord Spittleworth and Ickabog are the main characters of the novel. Their characters are very different and unique from others. The drawings by the children included in the book are also fabulous. The mischiefs of Lord Flapoon and Spittleworth are penned down splendidly.

The best thing in this novel is about the monster called Ickabog, it is a very loving and friendly monster and the children helped him and supported him. The arrival and departure of the Ickabog was really smooth.

The adventures of the main characters and the death of Mr. Beamish was also really incredible and saddening. Bert and Daisy had the cutest bond and the love of Mr. Dovetail for her daughter was really heartwarming. Lady Eslanda’s love for the cheese maker’s son was also really deep. Mrs. Beamish who thought his husband was killed by Ickabog was really innocent and sacrificed many things for his son. Lord Spittleworth had a negative role but was a really interesting and main character in the novel. This novel is filled with love and cleverness and plotting against the king.

It is one of the best novels I have read till now J.K Rowling has written this novel by really deep thoughts and sweetness. It is a beautifully written novel which should be read by everyone right there.

This novel has cute friendships along with their distances. The siblings in orphanage and the harsh Ma Grunta and John. The story of Cornucopia from a really wealthy country to a really poor country only because of the Ickabog tax. The nature and beauty of Cornucopia is written really briefly, beautifully, incredibly, splendidly and etc. The proposal of Spittleworth to Eslanda, Mrs. Beamish’s words to the maid about Mr. Dovetail’s dialogues.

Everything is written and maintained in a really smooth way. This novel is for adults and children, ladies and gents, girls and boys, for everyone! A really different story about a kingdom/country which is rumoured with the presence of Ickabog while there is no Ickabog present currently there. This story was really interesting and while I was reading it I just wanted to read it more not to stop.

In this book children from age group 6-12 had made drawings and were displayed in it too. I had fun reading this novel. This is a novel filled with love, support and negation which had enhance its beautification even more.

In the end King Fred was not at all happy because he was in the cell locked up. This novel is also saying us that don’t trust blindly as Lord Spittleworth and Flapoon betrayed King Fred. This novel is also saying us that we should have unity in ourselves of we have to achieve something/anything.

It was really fun reading this novel. It is one of my most favorite books as well as J.K Rowling is also my favorite author/writer. This novel should be read by everyone. The most beautiful and nature loving novel.

It is one of the best novels I have read till now J.K Rowling has written this novel by really deep thoughts and sweetness. It is a beautifully written novel which should be read by everyone right there.
