J.K. Rowling's newest book, Tales of Beedle the Bard, sold an amazing 2.6 million copies in the last week and helped raise £4.2m ($6.4m) for for the Children's High Level Group (CHLG), a charity co-founded by Rowling to help vulnerable children across Central and Eastern Europe.
Ms. Rowling said:
I am absolutely delighted that so much money has been raised. I would like to thank everyone who has so far purchased a copy of the book. All royalties will be going to help children without families, many of them with disabilities, whose voices have been unheard for many years.
