Almost a month after I come to tell you about my latest reading. Under the euphoria of the new book of the Harry Potter universe and the new movie this year I got a pretty box set with the Hogwarts Library collection.
It’s composed by three books: Quidditch Through the Ages, Fantastic Creatures and where to find them, that were published around the same time the original Harry Potter books and the new one The Tales of Beedle the Bard.
About the books themselves, are short, developed at the boundaries of the main story and in a way or another relevant to it.
Quidditch through the ages is the maximum encyclopedia of the Wizard’s sport by excellence, it tells us about the different teams, the rules and tells us some anecdotes about how the game took shape to become finally, the game we met and learned to love through the Harry Potter books.
Fantastic Creatures and Where to Find Them, is an extensive and comprehensive catalog of all creatures we can find in the magic world. Is the direct result of the work and travels of Newt Scamander through the world, and its precisely this quest what we will see in the new movie. The book includes a very good introduction to the topic of non-human beings in the magic world.
Finally, The Tales of Beedle the Bard is perhaps the most interesting because it not just tells the famous tales that children of families of Wizards and Witches from all over Europe grew listening, but also includes notes made by professor Dumbledore, that or those who have read the original seven books, take tremendous relevance for the final episode in the series.
As a Harry Potter fan, these books are a must-have in my bookshelves.
