Now, she's teasing her fans on Twitter with a new anagram riddle. Over the weekend, Rowling tweeted about how busy she was "tweaking" a screenplay, but that she was tempted to post some kind of riddle. Well, she did, and now legions of "Harry Potter" lovers are poring over this tweet with fine-toothed combs and magnifying glasses and metal detectors and whatnot:
Cry, foe! Run amok! Fa awry! My wand won't tolerate this nonsense.- J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) October 6, 2014
As her followers began flooding her with guesses, Rowling added a few hints:
"Newt Scamander's History of New York Fauna: One town, my tale" Warmer.- J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) October 7, 2014
#helpfulhint The solution is the first sentence of a synopsis of Newt's story. It isn't part of the script, but sets the scene.- J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) October 7, 2014
Newt Scamander is the main character of the upcoming movie "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them," which is likely the screenplay Rowling has been tweaking.
Can you solve Rowling's riddle?
