Harry Potter is scheduled to come out in Ancient Greek sometime this summer,
I'm told.

Does anyone know if any of these are available in Ancient Greek?
My Attic Greek study group is looking for some texts a bit easier
(and more fun) than leaping into Plato or Hesiod.

Actually, we've made a pass at writing _Petros_Lagoos_, a translation
of _Peter_Rabbit_. But writing is much harder than reading.
