Yes! That is exactly it. I suppose JKR is not too
bad(although I personally do not like her books. See
the "rounded characters" argument  another earlier
post. My thoughts exactly. Harry &Co are just a bit
twee for my taste), but why on earth the huge fuss?
Then again,although she may or may not be happy with
this windfall,  it may not  do the books any favours.
I mean, Coke/Pepsi sponsored plastic Chrestomanci
figurine anyone? Just imagine. Shudder....
