As a reward for topping a poll voted on by children, who had to choose their ultimate hero, a large-scale lego-set model of J.K. Rowling's face was constructed at Legoland Windsor.
The head of Legoland said this of Jo's honour:
| “Her books have been a great inspiration to children of all ages. |
“We actively encourage imagination and creativity and believe in making the children the heroes – just as Rowling does in her stories.”
Ms. Rowling placed first in the Legoland Windsor poll, which also ranked such other notable people' as President Barack Obama, Sir David Attenborough, Daniel Radcliffe, and others. The full list is as follows:
1. JK Rowling – 37.4%
2. Zac Efron – 27.3%
3. Barack Obama – 11.8%
4. Cheryl Cole – 6.7%
5. David Beckham – 4.4%
6. Andy Murray – 3%
7. Sir David Attenborough – 2%
8. Daniel Radcliffe – 2%
9. David Tennant – 1%
10. Joe Jonas (Jonas Brothers)
