really liked it

Just in case you didn't know, these are two books from J.K. Rowling's wizarding world. They are the texts that are referenced within the Harry Potter series, much akin to The Tales of Beetle the Bard. The two books are "Quidditch through the Ages" and "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them." The books are short and sweet, packed with humorous tidbits. What makes these books great though is the world, not the content.

Through the same quippy comments, sardonic scrawls, understated violence and relentless dedication to cultural 'norms' found in folk tales about magic, Rowling finds a way to plunge her readers back into the world of the Boy Who Lived. This isn't just an add on to the series, or a spin off, it exists from within the series. With a few short pages filled with pithy comments on Fwoopers and the Kenmare Kestrels Rowling gives another chance for people to delve into one of the most beloved realms ever created.

If you love the Harry Potter series, you will love these books
