Not everyone gets a gift from JK Rowling personally, however these 12 year olds in the Himalayas were shocked to receive something very special.

A few months ago, Sabbah Haji — a teacher from Haji Public School in the northern Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir, shared with JK Rowling an essay by one of her students, twelve-year-old Kulsum Bano Batt, who had written about how she was inspired by Rowling’s life.

Here’s how it all started:

The Harry Potter author responded and sent Kulsum a special gift.

Rowling initially replied in a tweet, asking:

The school now have this tweet on the wall like an award, Sabbah said:

Shoutout to the very gracious J K Rowling. This tweet framed for ever in our school hallway.

2 months later, we get the sequel to this adorable interaction!

JK took to Twitter to voice her excitement!

I’m so happy it got there! I was getting worried!

It turns out JK Rowling really does make magic, and it’s incredible to see.
