Something New on JK's Site!

If you are the relaxed, patient type who enjoys puzzles and brain teasers, there is some new activity happening over on JK Rowling's
official web site that is sure to appeal to your sense of mental adventure.

In the past, fans have been able to find information about JK's next book from clues on her web site, so we just might learn something new about book 7 soon... BUT... you'll have to put yourself through the mental wringer first!

It took me quite a while to figure out how to make things work, so here are a few instructions that should help you along the way (don't read if you want to figure this out on your own!):

- Click on the eraser on her desk to get magically transported to the next interactive page
- Click on the piece of rock hidden behind the vase with the plant
- Click and drag the rock to the mirror and smash it, revealing a golden key
- Insert the key into the main door's lock
- Now Click on the note inside the broken mirror. This is a clue about what to do next!
- Repair the mirror by typing "reparo" on your keyboard (you will not see the letters as you type them)
- When the mirror is fixed, click on the 'close' button on the top right hand side of it, then click on the open door inside the mirror. The main door will then open up for you
- You'll now see a black object with a long golden pin on a desk. This could be a graduation cap, but I'm unsure
- Drag the end of the golden pin so that it's pointing up and the object will slide off to the side, revealing a paper
- Click on the paper and you'll discover that it is a W.O.M.B.A.T. Grade 1 test paper
- Take the test, finish it within the required time limit, hit submit and receive a student ID code.... and...
- And that's as far as I got!

I am now waiting for my exam results from College AND my W.O.M.B.A.T. results from JK!
