Ben Buchanan's "year" goes from Christmas to Christmas. The Christmas of 1998 he received his first Harry Potter book. By The following Christmas he had read three Harry Potter books and created a board game based on the books with four boards, a rulebook, wizard money, a Quidditch ring and clay figures. The game was entered in his school's "Invention Convention. The following Christmas he was displaying and simplified version of his game at his local public library. A dyslexic, he had also developed a true love of reading - this is the real magic.
