Harry Potter is a wizard. He is in his second year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Little does he know that this year will be just as eventful as the last ...The second in the Harry Potter series to be translated into Latin for the first time, this follows in the steps of other great children's classics. The huge task of translating into Latin (most translations are done from Latin) has been undertaken by Peter Needham, who taught Latin at Eton for over 30 years. James Morwood, of Oxford University, has said of the translation of "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone": "The translation is great stuff. It is accurate and fluent, but it is much more than that. It has been carried off with wit, inventiveness, sensitivity and panache. I find it impossible to think of its being better done."

They have now sold over 320 million copies world wide. Originally published as an author for children and still primarily so, J.K. Rowling has generated huge popular appeal for her books in an unprecedented fashion. J.K. Rowling was the first children's author to be voted the BA Author of the Year, and also to win the British Book Awards Author of the Year. Major films have now been made of the first four books in the series. The translator, Peter Needham, taught Classics at Eton for over 30 years.

It was lots of fun reading this book and having it in Latin was a special treat indeed. The translation is great and reading it I felt that the book was written in Latin. The translator, Peter Needham, has done a pukka job at rendering modern language into an ancient tongue, and words such as car (autocinetum) or elevator (anabathrum) seem to come natural. This just goes to show that far from being a dead language Latin has been in use continuously from Roman times right up to the present. New words have been added to Latin just like English gets new words for new things and even though the number of Latin speakers today is much lower than in the past it is still a living language that continues to be used. I wish the rest of the Harry Potter series could be translated as well. It's so much more fun than reading De Bello Gallico, for example, and would a lot more encouraging for students to learn Latin and indeed make learning Latin more fun.
Other great and exciting books are Insula Thesauraria (Latin Edition), Pericla Navarchi Magonis (Latin Edition), Mysterium Arcae Boulé: The Boulé Cabinet Mystery (Latin Edition), Rebilii Crusonis Annalium (Latin Edition), but especially Fabulae Divales: Fairy Tales in Latin (Latin Edition) is great if you like magic and fairy tales.
See my list "Latin Reading List".
It would also make a great gift for someone who is learning Latin--easily expand your vocabulary.
