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.
