دايما كتب الـ"بوب أب" زي كدة "مجسم" كان ممنوع في مكتبة الحضانة والأبتدائي لمسه..تابو، لازم يتقرأ بأشراف الميس
ولما كبرت ولأني مهووس هاري بوتر، أكيد مفوتش المناسبة دي واخيرا اشتريت كتاب منهم...وبصراحة الكتاب ساحر فعلا
Welcome Harry..

Welcome, to Diagon Ally

You'll go to Hogwarts..

And you can hang out at Hagrid's Hut.

And his huge "pets", and the creatures of the forest.

There's "a lot of fun" competitions :)

And a sad curse.. an old unlikely enemy...

Do I even need to explain why I gave this a 5 stars. Okay I'll tell you why it's Harry Potter that's why!
My bestie bought this pop up book for me when he went to a vacation to London, which I'm so grateful for. Thank you so much!
I loved everything about this pop up book!
Mostly I loved the pop up pictures there will all beautiful and it reminded me of the movie scenes in the movies, which is always magical to remember!
Now I have a more depth idea of how the movies were created and how they made t

gorgeous book. you won't find any new facts or trivia if you've already read harry potter: film wizardry or harry potter page to screen: the complete filmmaking journey but the pop-ups are beautifully done. i now understand what they mean by "paper engineer". the pop-ups are so intricate and the scene literally unfolds before your eyes. definitely a must-have for harry potter collectors.

A colleague had this book and brought it in for me to use during my current Harry Potter unit with my students. I was blown away! This is one of the best pop-up books I have ever experienced. My students loved it as well. The book is well crafted, with great snippets of information and tons to explore. It is a visually stunning book.

This is the best pop-up book I've ever seen. Not because it's Harry Potter, but because the pop-ups have pictures on almost every visible part of them! You can look through doors and around corners and up streets, and then you can turn the book around and do the same thing on the back. It's really great.

This book is super cheesey, but I had to get it. The pop-ups are really cool, but there wasn't a ton to read or really any information that was new. The best part were the 3 posters it came with(an "Undesirable #1" poster, a Ministry of Magic poster, and one of Hogwarts and the grounds).

Any Harry Potter fan will Marvel at the intricately designed pop ups in this book and the attention to detail certainly doesn't fall short here. Filled with key locations from the films you get to explore the grounds of Hogwarts, Little Hangleton Graveyard and Diagonal Alley to name but a few.

Each page has a tidbit of information and the book comes with a few extra pieces of Harry Potter paraphernalia including Ron Weasley's infamous howler and an Undesirable No. 1 poster encased in a Ministry o

Recommends it for: Harry Potter fans and pop-up book fans.
Adorable and creatively informative, if a bit short. I really liked all the little flaps and pop ups!

This was finally restocked on Amazon and I am so happy that I got my hands on this.
The pop up art is def not the best, I mean I own a pop up book by Robert Sabuda which is just some next level shit and in comparison this pop up book really isn't that good because a lot of the times the scenery is just flat out printed on the paper and remains 2D.
Nonetheless I love it because I'm Harry Protter trash. The little howler in the front. :D Seeing a miniature of Hogwarts castle and Hagrid's hut - oh

Great short book! This is great material if you are a Harry Potter fan! I read it quiet quick and learned a lot of new trivia which I never knew prior reading this book. The images and the great work that went into this was defiantly worth it.

It is also the ultimate source to brand new information that you probably didn't know prior reading this. This is a must read if you are a Harry Potter fan! :)

"Amazing" is the word for this. Total 5 pop up that include diagon alley, hogwarts, hagrid hut/Forbidden forest, Triwizard cup & Quidditch pitch and graveyard. First page is non pop-up dubledore's office but this has ministry of magic envelop which includes 3 poster, apart from this there is a howler nice pop card in this page. Overall detailing is very good and it looks very real. the size is quite big for good detailing. overall a must have product for all the potterheads

The pop-ups in this (Hogwarts Castle, Diagon Alley, the Forbidden Forest, etc.) are amazing! The text was brief, but full of interesting tidbits about how the scenes were created and filmed and what parts are "real" and what parts are computer-animated. Very cool!

I am a sucker for all things Harry Potter, and for a good pop-up book. This one did not disappoint. The pop-ups are awesome! I loved the detail and the design. Well done Mr. Foster.

Pop up books are cool but this wasn't my favorite. I didn't really have a plot and the pop ups were kind of lame.

This was a REALLY poor attempt at making a pop up book. Most of it are just things printed on some paper that's popping up, instead of actually using paper in a way that was original or creative.

There is more reading involved in this book than you would think. But it is fun and very interesting.

Only issue was that I felt like it was too short and could do with a few more pages.
