Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find ThemFantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by J.K. Rowling
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is one of the three short books that JKR wrote after the Harry Potter series. Unlike "The Tales of Beedle the Bard", this volume is not integral to the storyline of the series, but it does shed light on the qualities of the many creatures encountered in the Potterverse. Especially entertaining are the scrawlings of various Potterverse characters in this replica of Harry Potter's textbook. Also amusing are the various descriptions of how muggles (humans without magical abilities) have encountered magical beasts and attributed to them things such as the Loch Ness Monster, crop circles, ravaged gardens and folk tales. Purchase of this book aids the charity Comic Relief, UK. Along with its two companion volumes - The Tales of Beedle The Bard and Quidditch Through The Ages, this volume is a must for fans of all things Harry Potter.
