The main point of the book is sheer invention, what attracts anyone to fantasy

ifferent beasts and beings and loved the introduction by Newt Scamander as well as Harry's and Ron's notes (they were hilarious and such a unique touch!) The main point of the book is sheer invention, what attracts anyone to fantasy. The creation of fantastic fantastical creatures! This little book is a little bit amusing, especially for nostalgia's sake.

Rowling (Author), Newt Scamander (Author). Best Sellerin Children's Animal Stories. JK Rowling takes her enviable ability to turn paper into gold to the next level by cleverly teaming up with Comic Relief 2001 to bring Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (a set text during Harry's first year at Hogwarts) and Quidditch Through the Ages (Harry's favourite book), to the masses-and all the money goes to charity.

Newt Scamander (Author) Newton ('Newt') Artemis Fido Scamander was born in 1897. His interest in fabulous beasts was encouraged by his mother, who was an enthusiastic breeder of fancy Hippogriffs. Upon leaving Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Mr Scamander joined the Ministry of Magic in the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures


Reviews about Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (7):

Being the complete potterhead that I am, I loved this book. I reccommend it for anyone who is interested in reading an informative encyclopedia-like book that you can find in the home of many wizarding folk. This book is supposed to be in similar format to a dictionary. DO NOT BUY IT IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A STORY. This book is used in the wizarding world as a guide on topics such as where to find a Hippogriff or what a knarl really is. Page wise, it is on the small side and lacks pictures, but if you love it as much as I do, it doesn't really matter. Multible people gave this only one star (undeservingly so in my opinion). Many of these people did so purely because they didn't research the product (by using the internet or READING THE HP BOOKS) before buying and were looking for a fairly tale or story similar to the new upcoming movie based on the book, not an encyclopedia. Do not let these bad reviews stop you from buying this book. I do suggest actually going to a book store rather than buying it from amazon though. That way, you will be able to skim through the pages and see if this is your kind of book. In addition, I read a few unsettling reviews about how in the name of God there is going to be a movie made based on the book. In case you are interested the movie is going to be about the author, Magizoologist Newt Scamander. Hope my review was helpful.

It is beyond disappointing that they took the "handwritten" notes out of the book. What is more frustrating, is I intentionally did not buy the three book packaged set because it clearly stated that the notes were not in the book in that box set, so I purchased the books individually because in the preview of this book it shows the notes. Upon further review, I see now that there a very fine print note that says that the preview book is a different version, but still, this is absolutely poor form and very frustrating.

A lot of fun for Harry Potter fans. My nine year old daughter loved it. She really enjoyed the funny hand written comments included throughout the book as if it were a student text book.

I was very worried when I read all the reviews and they were all for the screenplay. I already have the screenplay AND have seen the movie but have been waiting for the re-release of the actual Fantastic Beasts encyclopedia. Thank goodness it was exactly what I was hoping for! This book introduces all the different magical beasts and gives you different information about them. It is a great companion book to help better appreciate the movie! The hard cover is beautiful and the pages even have a glossy feel. I only paid $7 for it and feel it is definitely worth more with how nice of a quality the actual book is. I haven't read any of it yet but will update after I do!

Just a heads up! This is NOT the screenplay. This book is the literal "guide" to the beasts "written" by Newt Scamander.
This book is a very short, cute guide to all the beasts and includes a few doodles of the beasts as wel. It's not a thrilling read or anything, but it's a good read if you love the series and the movie.

My son Daniel received Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them for Easter and we had a grand time reading it together. He enjoyed the movie over the winter, but he really liked this textbook by Newt Scamander on the fantastic beasts that he had found over the world.

The book starts with a great introduction defining what a beast is and how they are classified. It also talked about how Muggles interact with the magical world of beasts. One of Daniel’s favorite items was a list of the Ministry of Magic Classifications of the beasts going from “X - Boring to “XXXXX – Known Wizard Killer / Impossible to Train or Domesticate.” The book lists all beasts alphabetically with a brief description of what they are and how they are classified. He bookmarked the classification scheme so he could quickly flip back and take a look at it with each beast.

Daniel’s favorite beast was the Hodag. In particular it was his favorite because “It is now confined, mostly successfully, to a protected area around Wisconsin.” We had to look it up outside of the book and read how the legend persists in the Wisconsin north woods. Daniel was convinced then that J.K. Rowling has visited Wisconsin and he thought that was very awesome.

Overall, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a quick enjoyable book. Even young 9-year old Daniel was impressed that proceeds all go to charity. He loved the format and learning more about the creatures in the Harry Potter series and the Fantastic Beasts movie.

Very cleverly written like a real textbook with handwritten notes from Ron and Harry in it. Enjoyed the "beasts" and trying to imagine them.
Entertaining and very educational on the various creatures in the book. Made me feel a bit like an actual Hogwarts student.
