"A glance through Muggle art and literature of the Middle Ages reveals that many of the creatures they now believe to be imaginary were then known to be real."
As every fan of the Harry Potter stories knows, the shelves of the Hogwarts Library are home to all sorts of fascinating books. There are three in particular you might have heard mentioned by certain Hogwarts students and that you can add to your listening list too, including Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
A set textbook at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry since publication, Newt Scamander's masterpiece has entertained wizarding families through the generations. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is an indispensable introduction to the magical beasts of the wizarding world.
Flipping through the pages of Newt's famous journal, you'll journey around the globe and discover the many and varied creatures that he made it his life's work to study and protect. Some of the beasts will be familiar to fans of the Wizarding World - the Hippogriff, the Niffler, the Hungarian Horntail...while others will surprise even the most ardent amateur Magizoologist.
Who better to narrate this stunning catalogue of magical creatures than Eddie Redmayne, who plays Newt Scamander in the Fantastic Beasts movies? Eddie's film credits include The Danish Girl, My Week with Marilyn, Les Misérables and The Theory of Everything, for which he won a Golden Globe, an Academy Award, and a BAFTA Award for Best Actor.
Fans of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them are sure to enjoy the other Hogwarts Library books: Quidditch Through the Ages and The Tales of Beedle the Bard.

This book is a very short, cute guide to all the beasts and includes a few doodles of the beasts as wel. It's not a thrilling read or anything, but it's a good read if you love the series and the movie.

The book starts with a great introduction defining what a beast is and how they are classified. It also talked about how Muggles interact with the magical world of beasts. One of Daniel’s favorite items was a list of the Ministry of Magic Classifications of the beasts going from “X - Boring to “XXXXX – Known Wizard Killer / Impossible to Train or Domesticate.” The book lists all beasts alphabetically with a brief description of what they are and how they are classified. He bookmarked the classification scheme so he could quickly flip back and take a look at it with each beast.
Daniel’s favorite beast was the Hodag. In particular it was his favorite because “It is now confined, mostly successfully, to a protected area around Wisconsin.” We had to look it up outside of the book and read how the legend persists in the Wisconsin north woods. Daniel was convinced then that J.K. Rowling has visited Wisconsin and he thought that was very awesome.
Overall, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a quick enjoyable book. Even young 9-year old Daniel was impressed that proceeds all go to charity. He loved the format and learning more about the creatures in the Harry Potter series and the Fantastic Beasts movie.

Plz click on the helpful button if you like the review :)
Also, it is inconsistent with the fantastic beasts film. Newt in the film would never describe creatures as boring which this book does, the character was fascinated by all creatures.
I'm also pretty sure they missed out some of the beasts! E.g. Boggarts and some others that I can't remember. Although my memory may be failing me, as I no longer have my original copy for comparison.
It includes scribbles and notations by Harry, Ron and Hermione which add to the fun of it and is kicked off with an introduction by Albus Dumbledore penned in his own inimitable style
produced to benefit Comic Relief with no compromise of the creative and colourfully descriptive writings of JKR, this is a great accompaniment to the harry potter collection of books - JKR is a literary legend of our time I say.
Trash in a nice cover. AVOID
