Borrowings Defended

Harry Potter and the art of lifting ideas - Review - Times Online

where Rowling has used traditional fairy-tale creatures, she has put her own spin on them. Fairies and sprites are not pretty, benign wish-granters but domestic pests; owls are not familiars but postmen. For every dragon and unicorn there are invented creatures like Thestrals (skeletal horses visible only to those who have seen death), Blast-Ended Skrewts (don�t ask) and, of course, the Dementors.
