This glorious new edition of Newt Scamander's Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (considered a classic throughout the wizarding world) features an extraordinary array of magical creatures, from Acromantula to Yeti via ten different breeds of dragon - all beautifully illustrated in full colour by the brilliantly inventive, Greenaway Medal shortlisted Olivia Lomenech Gill.

Famed Magizoologist Newt Scamander's years of adventure and exploration have yielded a work of unparalleled importance, admired by scholars, devoured by young witches and wizards, and even made available to Muggles in the early years of this century. With this dazzling illustrated edition, readers can explore the magical fauna of five continents from the comfort of their own armchairs. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is essential reading at Hogwarts.

This new edition features the fully updated 2017 text - which includes new profiles of six magnificent beasts that inhabit North America and a new foreword by J.K. Rowling, writing as Newt Scamander.

DEAR CHRISCOLEMAN: THIS IS THE ORIGINAL `SCHOOL BOOK`, NOT THE MOVIE (or anything to do with it.) Considering the half-`asterick` description you`ve given of the film (Dumbledore is NOWHERE to be seen, except as being mentioned having stood up for wrongfully accused Newt Scamander at Hogwarts, Pickett is a bowtruckle (although not anywhere near my idea of the proper look for a bowtruckle) and the two sisters are the by-the-book, rush-in-to-the-defense-of-the-helpless-where-MACUSA-fears-to-tread nerd and her delightful, Marilyn Monroe-sweet, Non-Maj (Muggle) adoring baby sister, I have only one question for you: WHAT FILM WERE YOU LOOKING AT, BWANA???????

This is a clever and funny book that gives the reader a little satisfaction for their Harry Potter fix once they have finished all the other books. It would be fun to read all the books again with this little volume as a reference book for all of the creatures we encounter in the books. I love Harry's handwritten notes!
