Harry Potter famed writer J.K Rowling recently excited the kids as she announced a drawing competition to illustrate the cover of her new release The Ickabog – a series of stories she has initiated to help kids stuck in lockdown. The exhilarating news however was disappointing for 10-year old Leila who had an awesome artwork but couldn’t participate in the competition due to eligibility limitations for Pakistani kids.

“Just because Pakistani kids don’t qualify for #TheIckabog competition, doesn’t mean niece Leila was going to miss being a part of the experience. Hope @jk_rowling likes this version of the Dovetails’ house because that would be just as awesome as having the drawing chosen,” Leila’s aunt shared her vibrant drawing on Twitter and wrote alongside.

Turning a bad day into a good one for her little fan, JK Rowling showered Leila with praises.

“I LOVE this beautiful picture of the Dovetails’ house, Leila! You’ve put so much of the story into the illustration: it’s clearly a carpenter’s house, with all those wooden accents, and I love the garden and flowers (but the sign to the graveyard adds a sad note),” tweeted the Harry Potter writer.
