The British novelist J.K. Rowling writes books under two names: J.K. Rowling and the pseudonym Robert Galbraith.
It was the Harry Potter series that made J.K. Rowling famous. Aimed at children, the wry touches of humour make the books fun for adults to read too, and reading the series aloud to quite young children perhaps the best combination of all. The audiobooks are read out by the talented (and funny) British actor Stephen Fry, so listening to Harry Potter on family trips is another option.
