Humor and children

“People have said the humour is very adult, but I do think they underestimate children. Certainly, some of the kids I’ve met have got every joke and even if they haven’t, it doesn’t actually matter. It annoys me that people think you have to dumb down for children.”

J. K. Rowling de Bertodano, Helena. "Harry Potter Charms a Nation." Electronic Telegraph, 25 July 1998 (ET)
