one wonders if Rowling knows the meaning of "decimated"

9:56: Maybe you could let her know, and she could tell you about capitalization and periods.

Anonymous A (9:56 PM) is right - Rowling's output would be improved by "decimation." That is to say, reduced by a tenth. But Anonymous B (11:46 AM) is also right - caps and punctuation are important.

It's a revelation for an outsider to observe the chilit minds at work.

It's alwayss instructive (and amusing) to read these samples of the kidlit wisdom. The first anon. (9:56 PM) is right - Rowling's work would benefit if cut by one tenth (i.e. decimated). And the second anon. (11:46 AM) is right to stick up for conventional punctuation. Thanks to both for their wisdom!
