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.

All remarkably interesting and expand the Harry Potter story. However if you are expecting the story of Newton "Newt" Scamander in fantastic beast and where to find them you will not, it is written to be a textbook from the wizarding world as mentioned in the philosopher's stone. The tales of Beedle the Bard are interesting as they help to flesh out and more deeply immerse the reader in the story especially the The Tale of the Three Brothers which features heavily the Deathly Hallows. Quidditch Through the Ages interested me the least I personally would have preferred A History of Magic or The Life and Lies of Albus Dumbledore to round out the set. Despite this I read them all in an afternoon and went on to read more articles on pottermore.com.

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!
