HARRY POTTER A SEXIST?:) Margie Stephens Margie drsmrs@earthlink.net Harry Potter is too good for children. The jokes in all four books are wonderful and a lot of them will go right over the heads of kids.

Read the books with your ears first so you'll know how to pronounce all the names. The Brit, Jim Dale, who reads them does a wonderful job. You'll even learn how to pronounce the author's name.

I'm insulted, however, that there's an "American" edition and another for the rest of the English speaking world. Geez, I've watched enuf PBS (read BBC) to be bi-lingual. I know what a car park is, where the first floor of a multi story building is, and even know how to flip someone off in British. {Not that I ever would, of course ... }
