Chapter: The Hunting of the Crumple-Horned Snorkack

I like it. Especially how much it sounds like one of those Middle Ages poems--it adds to the charm--and how Neville proved himself a hero.

Chapter: The Hunting of the Crumple-Horned Snorkack

Ok, I msde a spelling mistake in my previous review so I am posting it all again. *hangs head in shame.*

A lovely piece of writing. Poetry especially is so hard to write, mostly in this style where the third and the first and the fourthand the second line rhyme.

I absolutely loved the description in this poem especially-

There she stood with a light such as stars in her eyes
All of sleep was totally forgotten

I loved the decription of stars in her eyes. Very graphic.

But I am afraid I will ahve to start being a little ntipicky now-

‘But it doesn’t exist’ t’was Hermione to speak
‘It’s a fantasty made by your dad
I am sorry to say’ said she humble and meak
‘You would better go back to your bed’

Well, over here I thought that you intended it to be meek and not meak.
Also, in the last line, I feel that had would be a better substitute for 'would'.

Also, I would strongly advice putting a period at the end of every paragraph especially after a dialogue is spoken. And don't worry, this will definitely not disrupt the flow of the poem in any way.

‘To be famous means trouble’ he said to his friends
‘A trouble I eagerly shun
I prefere to be known for what I intend
Rather than what I have done’

Now this paragraph was certainly lovely. I love the ideas you put into it however, I think that it should be prefer and not prefere. But on the other hand, this was definitely one of my favourite paragraphs.


An adventure it is more than any we’ve seen
For I tell you, that beast is a foul one
It is hungry and rude, it is cruel, it is mean
It is rightfully ‘voided and shun’

Maybe the flow would be better if you changed the last line to it is rightfully avoided and shunned.

There she stood queer and eager as few of her size
For the journey they soon would be gotten

I would advice placing a period after gotten. Also, maybe you should use a better rhyming substitute for gotten. I don't think it goes with UK english. (Or does it?)

Hermione sat uffish, alone in the hut
Refused to take part of the hunt
Alone? Not at all, next to her Neville sat
And commented her mood with a grunt


Very,very funny paragraph. However, what is uffish? Did you by any chance mean huffish? (Or am I just very ignorant?)


Home they went on their carpet, home to the feast
Where Neville was very relived


Ok, the only mistake I noticed was that relieved has accidentally been spelt relived here.


Ok, I will stop being overly critical now. Overall, I must say this was an excellent piece of poetry. I would so love to see more of your writing! Keep up the good work!

wow, that was a novel! Very well written, I'm not to sure why but I'm particularly fond of the stanza, ‘To be famous means trouble’ he said to his friends ‘A trouble I eagerly shun I prefere to be known for what I intend Rather than what I have done’
