I Get On the Bus That Takes Me To You
As The Who said in their song, Magic Bus:
"Every day I get in the queue
To get on the bus that takes me to you"
They could have also added:
"You know those French people
like buses too"
But they didn't.
About two months ago when every person in the English-speaking world was buying the next Harry Potter book, a lot of French people were yawning. But not on October 26th, when the version francaise is released. JK Rowling has more money than the Queen of England. And why not? She made up the word "Hogwarts".
In conjunction with the release of the book, called Harry Potter et les Reliques de la Mort (Pronounced "airy poda". and swallow when you say "airy" if you want to get it right), the book's publisher is organizing la Tournée du MagicoBus Harry Potter, which will stop in some of France's major cities to meet young Harry Potter fans between October 17th and 26th. Fans will experience magical activities and games inside the magico bus, and everyone gets a poster, probably of Brigitte Bardot.Sadly the bus doesn't come to Mougins so we'll be missing the magic.
