Both mentors were also eventually killed when fighting their former students. In Star Wars, it is presumed and appears to be Luke Skywalker, but actually revealed to be Anakin Skywalker as proclaimed in the Jedi prophecy who would destroy the Sith and bring balance to the Force. He does this after being redeemed by his son, Luke Skywalker. The setting is a world resembling early s Britain, where magic is commonplace. Diana Wynne Jones has stated in answer to a question on her webpage: "I think Ms Rowling did get quite a few of her ideas from my books โ€” though I have never met her, so I have never been able to ask her.

My books were written many years before the Harry Potter books Charmed Life was first published in , so any similarities probably come from what she herself read as a child.

Once a book is published, out in the world, it is sort of common property, for people to take ideas from and use, and I think this is what happened to my books. Rowling, Britain's bestselling author was comic fantasy writer Terry Pratchett.

His Discworld books, beginning with The Colour of Magic in , satirise and parody common fantasy literature conventions. Pratchett was repeatedly asked if he "got" his idea for his magic college, the Unseen University , from Harry Potter's Hogwarts , or if the young wizard Ponder Stibbons , who has dark hair and glasses, was inspired by Harry Potter.

Both in fact predate Rowling's work by several years; Pratchett jokingly claimed that he did steal them, though "I of course used a time machine. He trains other kids in unauthorised extra sessions, which enrages his enemies, who attack him with the intention of killing him; but he is protected by his loyal, brilliant friends and gains strength from the love of some of his family members.

He is given special guidance by an older man of legendary accomplishments who previously kept the enemy at bay. He goes on to become the crucial figure in a struggle against an unseen enemy who threatens the whole world.

Simpson, Band claimed: "I've heard that J.

Rowling has acknowledged that maybe she saw this low-budget movie and perhaps it inspired her. Rowling says the idea just came to her. John doesn't think so.

There are a lot of similarities between the theme of her books and the original Troll. Comic book historian Michael Mallory examined the original premise of the comic, in which teenage mutants study under Professor X to learn how to control their abilities, safe from fearful Homo sapiens , and also battle less benign mutants like Magneto.

He argued, "Think about [the comic] clad in traditional British university robes and pointy hats, castles and trains, and the image that springs to mind is Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizard[ry], with Dumbledore, Voldemort and the class struggle between wizards and muggles.

Just as the creators of X-Men consciously or unconsciously tapped into the creative ether of their time for inspiration, so has the X-Men phenomenon had an effect on the books and films that has since followed.

Entertainment Weekly cited Lloyd Alexander as a possible influence on Rowling when it named her its Entertainer of the Year.

The second novel, also called The Dark Is Rising , features a young boy named Will Stanton who discovers on his eleventh birthday that he is in fact imbued with magical power; in Will's case, that he is the last of the Old Ones, beings empowered by the Light to battle the Dark. The books open in much the same way, with Will finding that people are telling him strange things and that animals run from him. Le Guin 's A Wizard of Earthsea Parnassus, , in which a boy with unusual aptitude for magic is recognised, and sent to a special school for wizards, resembles that of Harry Potter.

Le Guin has claimed that she doesn't feel Rowling "ripped her off", but that she felt that Rowling's books were overpraised for supposed originality, and that Rowling "could have been more gracious about her predecessors. My incredulity was at the critics who found the first book wonderfully original.

She has many virtues, but originality isn't one of them. That hurt. Her professors include a kindly and elderly headmistress and a bullying, raven-haired potions teacher. Even worse are reviewers who come across my books, or see the TV series, and, without taking the trouble to find out that it's now over quarter of a century since I wrote my first book, make pointed remarks about 'clever timing' โ€” or say things like 'the Worst Witch stories are not a million miles from JK Rowling's books'.

The implications are really quite insulting! Harry Potter trains to become a wizard at his late childhood and mentored by Albus Dumbledore in facing his destiny and enemy Lord Voldemort ; whereas Luke Skywalker trains to become a Jedi at his early adulthood and is mentored by Obi-Wan Kenobi in facing his destiny and enemy Darth Vader also known as Lord Vader.

The main villains of both the franchises also share many similarities. Tom Riddle was once also a student of the hero's mentor, Dumbledore at Hogwarts , also studying to be a wizard before he turned evil and transformed into Voldemort.

Both also mentored the main villain of their stories before they turned bad and betrayed their respective mentor. Both mentors were also eventually killed when fighting their former students. Roald Dahl was a creative and brilliant writer and given he wrote many of his works for children, perhaps intended for them to be read aloud, by a parent or carer at bedtime, like I did for my son. I couldn't find my son's copy of Fantastic Mr Fox after the timeline reminder, so for old times sake, I downloadd the site version, and enjoyed reading it again.

I recommend you do the same.

Perhaps find a quiet place to read it aloud. Or, better still, read it to your child at bedtime. Rrd Fantastic Mr. Fox is a fantastic book!

There are a lot of cliffhangers in this book! All the characters are unique and interesting in their own way. The animals have so much personality. Its wonderful little digging creatures give it charm.

This book is good to read to 1st-5th graders. The book is very enjoyable and fun.
