Russia, actually, is the world's official capital of Harry Potter knockoffs. Tanya Grotter is the most infamous one, featuring horrible writing and a vulgar red headed girl in whore-riffic outfits (if the cover is any indication). So, betweem that and Litvinova's translation I would say that the Russian kids are being cheated out of a whole genre of literature. Porry Hatter, however, a Belarusian parody about a perfectly normal kid raised by a family of wizards (apparently, upon arriving in Perverts, the wizarding school, his greatest ambition is to be transferred to a Polytechnic Institute to study communications) is at least funny. For a couple of pages. Yes, Porry struggle with He-Who-Can-Be-Named-Whatever-The-Hell-You-Want-Now may just captivate you. Apparently, the second book is dedicated entirely to Merhione Pager.
