The Harry Potter books are ‘fattist’ because they portray overweight kids in a bad way, it’s been claimed. Harry’s cousin Dudley is overweight – and he’s also selfish, stupid, lazy and greedy. The charity Weight Concern reckons more kids will see fat children in this way – and this could lead to them being bullied at school.

Pravda reports that the world seems to have gone mad after Harry Potter series by J.K.Rowling was issued. Millions of editions are being instantly sold out, while shops are full of round glasses and magic wands. Children are disappointed to know they have good vision and cannot wear round glasses. Even university girls prefer the book about the young wizard to Bulgakov.
