Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Newt Scamander’s classic compendium of magical creatures, has delighted generations of wizarding readers. Now, in this updated edition with a new foreword by Newt himself and the unveiling of six beasts little known outside the American wizarding community, Muggles too have the chance to discover where the Thunderbird lives, what the Puffskein eats, and why shiny objects should always be kept away from the Niffler.
JK Rowling did a magical work here! It’s truly amazing so much imagination and details that she developed here, even more impressive taking in account that many of those creatures never appeared in the saga.
Also, you will read about all the politics behind of defining how to control those beasts even on times before of the existence of the Ministry of Magic! And of course, also, during the course of the ministry, even detailing how complicated and polemic became to classify certain creatures easily seen as beings instead of beasts.
Definitely this is a quick but wonderful engaging reading of the magical world of Harry Potter.
Rowling is the author of the bestselling Harry Potter series of seven books, published between 1997 and 2007, which have sold over 450 million copies worldwide, are distributed in more than 200 territories and translated into 79 languages, and have been turned into eight blockbuster films by Warner Bros. She has written three companion volumes to the series in aid of charity: Quidditch Through the Ages and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them in aid of Comic Relief; and The Tales of Beedle the Bard in aid of her children’s charity Lumos.
