J.K. Rowling has selected the scene from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in which Harry walks through the Dark Forest to face off with Voldemort to be included in The Birthday Book, a new treasury of children's stories and poems. Though Rowling admits it is not the most celebratory of scenes, she says she selected it because it is when Harry finally accepts his fate. "Birthdays are often moments for reflection, moments when we pause, look around, and take stock of where we are;" says Rowling, "children gleefully contemplate how far they have come, whereas adults look forwards into the trees, wondering how much further they have to go."
