The Hogwarts Library is a collection of the popular stories: Quidditch Through the Ages, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and The Tales of Beedle the Bard. Written by J.K. Rowling, with additional notes from the esteemed Professor Albus Dumbledore, the trilogy of books is an essential collection for any wizard or Muggle home.
If you’re a fan of the Harry Potter franchise, then it’s always exciting to learn more about the history of Hogwarts and everything that it is included. And that’s why you’ll love The Hogwarts Library. All three stories are widely referenced in the original Harry Potter books and provide fun and imaginative content that allow you to step even further into the magical wizarding world.
Also, the collection of books is just simply stunning and will look beautiful on your bookshelf.
And here are my reviews of each book individually:
Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them
With the recent release of the Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, every Harry Potter fan will want this encyclopedia of magical beasts. Written by Newt Scamander himself, the book is an A-Z of various animals and creatures, some of which we have now seen in the many film adaptations.
There aren’t any illustrations, which is a shame, but the book does include notes and annotations from Harry and Ron which are quite funny. Still, it would be great for a later edition to add some sketches of these monsters to complement the detailed descriptions of all of these imaginary beasts.
The Tales Of Beedle The Bard
After watching Part 1 of Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows, there’s no doubt that you will be eager to own your own copy of The Tales Of Beedle The Bard to read The Tale of the Three Brothers for yourself.
Along with a number of other fables, this collection of short stories is absolutely beautiful. Every story is one that I could read again, and they all fit into the Harry Potter world brilliantly, capturing that magical although somewhat dark tone perfectly.
I would happily own a copy of this book on its own to read to my little boy before bed, it’s that magnificently mystical.
Quidditch Through The Years
If there’s one thing we want to learn more about in the Harry Potter world, it’s Quidditch.
Detailing the history and influences of the game, explaining where the Golden Snitch came from, how the Bludgers came into existence, and bringing it into the present day with the different teams, robes and world games, this book brilliantly showcases Rowling’s love for detail.
It’s no wonder this is the most checked-out book in the Hogwarts Library.
