Being the complete potterhead that I am, I loved this book. I reccommend it for anyone who is interested in reading an informative encyclopedia-like book that you can find in the home of many wizarding folk. This book is supposed to be in similar format to a dictionary. DO NOT BUY IT IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A STORY. This book is used in the wizarding world as a guide on topics such as where to find a Hippogriff or what a knarl really is. Page wise, it is on the small side and lacks pictures, but if you love it as much as I do, it doesn’t really matter. Multible people gave this only one star (undeservingly so in my opinion). Many of these people did so purely because they didn’t research the product (by using the internet or READING THE HP BOOKS) before buying and were looking for a fairly tale or story similar to the new upcoming movie based on the book, not an encyclopedia. Do not let these bad reviews stop you from buying this book. I do suggest actually going to a book store rather than buying it from amazon though. That way, you will be able to skim through the pages and see if this is your kind of book. In addition, I read a few unsettling reviews about how in the name of God there is going to be a movie made based on the book. In case you are interested the movie is going to be about the author, Magizoologist Newt Scamander. Hope my review was helpful. Check it out!
From Publishers Weekly Two new books penned by J.K. Rowling will help tide over Harry Potter fans as they await book five, and raise money for a good cause: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by Newt Scamander, an A to Z listing of all beings magical (and required reading for all first-year Hogwarts students), and Quidditch Through the Ages by Kennilworthy Whisp (a “renowned Quidditch expert”), the official handbook of the wizard’s sport of choice, both with a foreword by esteemed Hogwarts headmaster Dumbledore. Rowling wrote the books to raise funds for Comic Relief in the U.K., a charitable organization helping poor and disadvantaged people in Africa and the U.K. (not affiliated with the U.S. Comic Relief organization). Many printers and paper suppliers are joining in the effort by donating their services.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Paperback – 2009 by J.K. Rowling (Author) Review
I was very worried when I read all the reviews and they were all for the screenplay. I already have the screenplay AND have seen the movie but have been waiting for the re-release of the actual Fantastic Beasts encyclopedia. Thank goodness it was exactly what I was hoping for! This book introduces all the different magical beasts and gives you different information about them. It is a great companion book to help better appreciate the movie! The hard cover is beautiful and the pages even have a glossy feel. I only paid $7 for it and feel it is definitely worth more with how nice of a quality the actual book is. I haven’t read any of it yet but will update after I do! -Read Reviews-
A lot of fun for Harry Potter fans. My nine year old daughter loved it. She really enjoyed the funny hand written comments included throughout the book as if it were a student text book.
