No. Rewriting (even a complete rewrite) is a breach of copyright law and you'll be prosecuted for it.

You may write a novel about a boy attending a Wizard academy but you may not call him Harry Potter, give him two friends named Hermoine and Ron and simply paraphrase each and every event that occurs in the Harry Potter books. Copyright law would not even be your biggest problem in such a case. The main issue is that the Harry Potter books have already been published and sold millions and yours would necessarily be a worse version of these highly successful works and no publisher would touch them. This is going to be true of whatever published work you plan on stealing. No one wants to read this sort of nonsense.

It's called plagarism and it's a criminal offense. Not only that, but the original author will get every penny you make off the work and more.
