Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling has contributed a small quote that is included in a new children's poetry book. Once Upon a Poem: Favourite Poems That Tell Stories is a collection of poems with introductions from a variety of authors such as Philip Pullman, Cornelia Funke, and Mary Pope Osborne. J.K. Rowling introduces a poem called "Jim Who Ran Away from his Nurse, and was Eaten by a Lion" by Hilaire Belloc. J.K. Rowling writes

"Belloc is one of my favourite poets for his wit, his understatement, and his profundity- but, perhaps most of all, for the lion called Ponto who ate Jim."
