Someday you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again
Paul Waldman argues reading children's literature - tales of heroes, heroism and adventure - leads to depression in adulthood. Nothing in Harry Potter prepares kids for a future burdened with television, trips to the bathroom and filling out tax forms.
The problem is that then you begin to grow up and realize you're just a lowly muggle.
