You can find some great discussion questions for Harry Potter at Challenging the Bookworm

And finally, a bit of monster art goodness--all of Lovecraft's monsters beautifully portrayed, via Galleycat. Here's an example from the artist's website (Yog-Blogsoth)

"So T’yog wrote his protective formula on a scroll of pthagon membrane (according to von Junzt, the inner skin of the extinct yakith-lizard) and enclosed it in a carven cylinder of lagh metal—the metal brought by the Elder Ones from Yuggoth, and found in no mine of earth. This charm, carried in his robe, would make him proof against the menace of Ghatanothoa—it would even restore the Dark God’s petrified victims if that monstrous entity should ever emerge and begin its devastation."
H.P. Lovecraft & Hazel Heald, Out Of the Aeons
