Hogwarts Library Collection- Book Review
If you're like me, and you love Harry Potter and want more to read, on Harry's world, after 7 novels, then this collection may be your answer. The Hogwarts Library Collection has 3 books: Quidditch Through the Ages, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and The Tales of Beedle The Bard. Let's check out the books in the Collection:
Quidditch Through the Ages: Did you enjoy the Quidditch games in the Harry Potter novels and wanted to know how the game and brooms evolved? Then, check out this book! You will learn how brooms evolved from ordinary brooms to the Nimbus 2000, how the game of Quidditch started out and how we got the Golden Snitch. You will also learn the rules of Quidditch, fouls and moves like the Wronski Feint.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: Maybe you are more of the magical creature type who rooted for Buckbeak in his trail, want a Phoenix like Fawkes, or to know the types of dragons that Harry and the Triwizard Champions had to face, if so this is the book for you. Explore and discover the many creatures that exist in the Harry Potter Universe from the Acromantula Aragog to Thestrals. As a bonus, Harry and his friends have written in the pages (I personally would never write in a book) with their own comments on magical creatures they have faced.
Tales of Beedle The Bard: Maybe, just maybe, you enjoy fairy tales, where the Tale of the Three Brothers originated from, that gave Harry and his friends clues on the Deathly Hallows, if so this is the book you want. Explore the 5 tales of Beedle the Bard that includes Babbitty Rabbitty, and The Wizard with the Hopping Pot that Ron heard growing up. This book may not have funny writings from Harry and Ron but it does feature notes from Albus Dumbledore that will help enlighten the reader on the 5 tales in the book.
I enjoyed reading all 3 of these short books(each is only roughly around 100 pages) and learning more about the Wizarding World. Did you know if you purchase this box set a part of the proceeds go to Comic Relief and Lumos? So not only do you get to enjoy more books, from the World of Harry Potter you can help others in need, that's a win win if I ever saw one. I will gladly give this box set a 9/10 due to the fact I wish the books were longer as they were such fun to read after reading the novels. Up next, for my Harry Potter Marathon, is The Cursed Child.
