Actually I completely agree with you, I didn't mean to make it sound like J.K. Rowlings' style was the end all be all, it is far from it. I just think that the standard by which success is measured is sales, and she has done well with that.

There are certainly far better storytellers in youth literature, in fantasy and other fields. Lewis, Alexander, Tolkein, Hobb, Cooper to name but a few. However, there are plenty of authors who I find far worse, and infinitely more difficult to read. Jennifer Roberson springs to mind, especially with the Cheysuli(sp?) books.

And, to clarify, none of my comments were directed at you, or any one person in particular. I was simply making an observation, based on my feeling that to disparage an obvious success, in any discipline or genre really, just strikes me as a bit of bitterness that the success wasn't theirs. Especially when it's done by someone that could be seen as "competing".
