Product description

Amazon Review

JK Rowling takes her enviable ability to turn paper into gold to the next level by cleverly teaming up with Comic Relief 2001 to bring Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (a set text during Harry's first year at Hogwarts) and Quidditch Through the Ages (Harry's favourite book), to the masses--and all the money goes to charity. --Susan Harrison

Review

Anyone who plays or watches Quidditch regularly will relish Mr Whisp's book (Albus Dumbledore)

A veritable treasure trove of hitherto unknown facts about the sport of warlocks (Bathilda Bagshot, author of A HISTORY OF MAGIC)

A thoroughly enjoyable book; Quidditch fans are sure to find it both instructive and entertaining (Which Broomstick?) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I found this book to be far better than "fantastic beasts and where to find them" as it goes in to more depth with the history, which could be seen as very convincing. The book starts off by going into explaining the humble beginnings of the game in a wizard's family garden. The book continues on to the more primitive, earlier version of the game, the rules and the controversies, the historic games, the advances in broomsticks - how it was popular to make your own in the early stages of the games before witches and wizards eventually decided to buy them made from companies. It also talks about the balls used in the game and what they were once originally made of and what the Golden Snitch was based on. It finishes by explaining how the game is played today.
Throughout there are mentions of prominent Teams and Players throughout the world and how it spread throughout. A whole chapter being dedicated to the Quidditch teams of The UK and Ireland.

I love how Rowling does a great job making this world believable that it's actually real. I think all Harry Potter fans should at least read this once.
