London, May 12: A Harry Potter prequel handwritten on a postcard by author J.K. Rowling has been stolen in a burglary in Birmingham, England, the media reported on Friday. The manuscript was penned on both sides of an A5 card for a charity auction nine years ago and sold for 25,000 pounds ($32,130), the BBC reported. The untitled 800-word work was taken from Howard Road, Kings Heath. Reportedly set three years before Harry Potter’s birth, it features the schoolboy wizard’s father James Potter, and godfather Sirius Black, when they were teegers. They are confronted by two “muggle” policemen after a high-speed motorbike chase but mage to escape on broomsticks. The manuscript was stolen during a break-in between April 13 and 24, West Midlands Police said. (IANS)
