In Soviet Russia, book publish you!

Apparently Harry Potter clones have been appearing out the wazoo in Russia.

"In Russia Harry Potter is popular too, in fact it was way too popular so some book publishing companies came up with their Harry Potter clones, trying to make it sound close to original even in naming the characters, so the most two popular ones were (and still are) the Porry Gatter with its first book “Porry Gatter and the Stoned Philosopher” - you can see it’s cover above, and the girlish series “Tanya Grotter” - like if Harry Potter was a girl (on the photo below)."

Not gonna lie, I was particularly excited to make this post just so that I could make one of those reverse Russia jokes (even if they are old).
