Quidditch for the fans,
This review is from: Comic Relief: Quidditch Through the Ages (Harry Potter's Schoolbooks) (Paperback)
This book, with Magical Creatures, was written for Comic Relief and translated into many languages. Although I liked the Magical Creatures book better, this book also gives you more insight into the magical world of Harry Potter. It shows the amount of detail J.K. Rowlings puts in writing her books. Like George Lucas, director of the Star Wars movies once said: Fiction is so much harder to think up than reality; when you make up a fantasy world, every rule you think up is forever, and when you start, it is hard to imagine how this rule you have started will affect future events.
In this little book, J.K. Rowlings shows that she really did think of all the effects of the rules she made up in her fantasy world. While describing the evolution of Quidditch, she carefully maintains all the boundaries she has set in the Harry Potter books.
You can see how Harry must have enjoyed reading this book.
