How Clever Is This Lady?

I'm in Chapter Five, Diagon Alley, of SS when Harry is in the wand store and Mr. Ollivander tells him about his parents' wands. He says (on page 82 of the US paperback) "Your father... favored a mahogany wand... A little more power and excellent for transfiguration [my italics]." That teeny-tiny clue two books prior to Azkaban that Harry's father would turn out to be an Animagus.
I think J.K. might be too clever for her own good.

JKR rules :) wish my imagination was a fierce as that!

I noticed that too.
That and it was mentioned that his mother's wand was something that was good with charms.

That's really interesting - amazing attention to detail.
