2001 Red Nose Day: JK PENS US POTS OF DOSH.

EXCITEMENT is mounting for all Harry Potter fans. The countdown has begun to the launch of two exciting new books from author J.K. Rowling - both in aid of Comic Relief.

The books are poised to make millions for the charity, virtually guaranteeing that this year's Comic Relief is going to be a real blockbuster itself.

J.K. Rowling has penned a 10,000 word book called Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them under the pseudonym Newt Scamander. She has also put together another eagerly awaited tome called Quidditch Through The Ages, by Kinnillworthy Whisp, which tells the history and rules of the most important sport in the wizard world of Harry Potter and his pals.

The Comic Relief effort will also be boosted by sales of a new book from Bridget Jones author Helen Fielding and Delia Smith's Chocolate Collection.

Bridget Jones's Guide To Life offers handy hints on household management and how to throw the perfect dinner party. All, of course, with Helen's light comedic touch.

At the Red Nose Day launch, Comedian Nick Hancock said the books gave Comic Relief "the most extraordinary start".

But he added: "We must not forget that the most money is still raised by the public digging deep into their own pockets."
