Es war mal wieder Zeit für eine Buchvorstellung, und meine Tochter hat wieder einen dicken Band ausgewählt, den sie halb in Erinnerung an den Film, halb anhand der wunderbaren Illustrationen nacherzählt. Hier ist: Harry Potter und der Gefangene von Askaban Leider hat sich zwischendurch die Kamera automatisch ausgeschaltet, daher fehlt leider ein Stück. Autor: J.K. […]
