About the Author

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone was J.K. Rowling's first novel, followed by Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, as well as three books written for charity and inspired by the Harry Potter novels: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Quidditch Through the Ages and The Tales of Beedle the Bard. The Harry Potter novels have now sold over 450 million copies worldwide and been translated into 72 languages. J.K. Rowling has generated huge popular appeal for her books across the generations in an unprecedented fashion: she was the first children's author to be voted the BA Author of the Year, and also to win the British Book Awards Author of the Year. J.K. Rowling lives with her family in Edinburgh.

The Hogwarts Library is a fantastic collection of additional Harry Potter books written and illustrated by J. K. Rowling. The three books included in this set are Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them, The Tales of Beedle The Bard & Quidditch Through The Ages which have all been previously released in paperback with partial proceeds going to charity (Comic Relief & Lumos). While many fans will own these books already I feel this lovely set is a worthwhile purchase - I was thrilled to update my flimsy thin paperbacks with these wonderful, larger hardback editions. All three books come housed in a solid red sleeve with a gold embossed Hogwarts symbol on the front and back covers and the books themselves are presented with matching green, blue and red covers respectively. The gold embossed finish on each hardback really enhances this collectable boxset and, needless to say, the books are charming and well-written. Each one offers an extra glimpse into the magical world by exploring mysterious creatures, sporting history and enchanting fairytales with additional notes from our favourite wizards. Any Harry Potter fan will be thrilled with this set, suitable for muggles and wizards alike.

This box set is very beautiful!! It makes its readers feel that they belong
in the magical world of Harry Potter!! It feels like the reader went
to the Library and was borrowed those three books!
Furthermore, each book has something special within it.
For example, in the book:

- Quidditch through the Ages, in the beggining of the book,
''special'' comments are said by famous witches such as
Bathilda Bagshot or Gildroi Lochart (not a very good
wizard!) and others who speak about Quidditch or about the (fictional)
writer of this book!

- Fantastic Beasts & where to find them, throughout the book
funny pictures - (like somebody drew them) of SOME beasts are appeared!

- Tales of Beedle the Bard, in the end of each tale, comments from
Proffesor Albus Dumbledore are noted!!

Please note than in the begging of each book, special notes are appeard,
either from the Librarian, from Harry Potter or -like in the Tales of Beedle
the Bard- it is noted that the translator of the book from Ancient Rouns is
Hermione Greinger!

*Note that the box set is a little heavy!!!

To sum up, I believe that each Harry Potter fan should own this, as I strongly
believe that he or she would feel as part of the Wizarding World of
Harry Potter and specificcally a member / student of Hogwarts School!

*Each boy or girl who is a Harry Potter fan should own it no matter what their
age is!!
Perfect for a gift!!!

Thank you for reading this!

I'm a complete potter head so I was bouncing in my seat waiting for these books. They completely met my expectations and more. I would recommend that you but them if your a potter head like me.. However don't buy fantastic beasts and where to find them if you think it will give you insights to the film as it is literally a school text book my faveourite part about it was (SPOILER ALERT!!!) that harry and Ron and hermione have wrote all threw it. I hope this review has helped some of you decide whether it's a book collection for yourselfs or someone else..

I was amazed when I saw the package. It really looks like it is a library book.
The book covers are simple yet great. They are not damaged in any way and they
are a perfect read for any occasion.

Highly recommend to anyone with imagination!

A lovely collection, the slipcase is red linen with gold embossing and matches the special edition box set. All the books have extra comments, either scribbles form Harry, Ron and Hermione or notes from Dumbledore. They are different to previous version and £4.80 from set will be donated to charity. A must for any fan.

The books are so beautiful and the box is pretty nice too (although I accidentally scratched it). It's a little expensive for 3 very short books but it looks so nice on my book shelf, I don't care. The books are a nice extension to the Harry Potter universe. The tales of Beedle the Bard is probably my favourite because it's essentially a book of fairy tales (and is great to read before you go to sleep, which is what I've been doing), but the other two are pretty sweet too! I'd highly recommend!
