Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them

12/14/16

bookfbFantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them movie and classification book was first inspired by J.K. Rowling’s briefly mentioned character Newt Scamander in the Harry Potter series. Newt’s fascination with beasts lead to him to write a book about his findings. This textbook is taught at wizarding schools around the world, such as Hogwarts — it was a first-year textbook read by Harry Potter. From that Rowling wrote a few books in addition to the Harry Potter series, Quidditch Through the Ages, The Tales of Beedle the Bard and Fantastic Beasts and Where to find Them. So this book was only inspiration for the recently released movie, not an adaptation like the previous films. What makes this book a must in your collection is it has handwritten notes from Harry Potter himself as it is his copy of the book from when he went to Hogwarts. “That’s what you think”, “Hagrid’ll be getting some any time now” and “Has Hagrid read this book?” are just some of his comments. It also has a forward written by none other than Albus Dumbledore and an introduction with history and why Magiczoology matters. If you are looking for a book to read based on the Fantastic Beasts movie, there is a screenplay. This book gives greater depth into the beasts of the wizarding world.
