Zipes, Jack author
Noted scholar of children's literature, Zipes has been critical of Rowling's novels. He is a Professor of German at the University of Minnesota. One of his recent works is WEB LINK - amazon.comSticks and Stones: The Troublesome Success of Children's Literature from Slovenly Peter to Harry Potter (Routledge 2002), in which he notes of Rowling's novels: "if you've read one, you've read them all: the plots are the same, and in my opinion, the story lines become tedious and grating after you have read the first."
