Required reading for any self-respecting Potter fan,

This review is from: The Magical Worlds of Harry Potter: A Treasury of Myths, Legends and Fascinating Facts (Paperback)
I have seen this book in stores many times but held back from buying it because it is aimed specifically at children, and I suspected it may be basic or even boring. I have just finished reading it and I was completely wrong! It is packed with fascinating and informative background information on characters, spells and events from the books, and, crucially, it inspired me to search for more books on Greek mythology and the history of witchcraft.
