A copy of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them resides in almost every wizarding household in the country. Now Muggles too have the chance to discover where the Quintaped lives, what the Puffskein eats, and why it is best not to leave milk out for a Knarl.
Proceeds from the sale of this book will go to Comic Relief, which means that the dollars and Galleons you exchange for it will do magic beyond the powers of any wizard. If you feel that this is insufficient reason to part with your money, I can only hope that passing wizards feel more charitable in they see you being attacked by a Manticore.

This book is wonderful. Once again, J.K. Rowling shows her genius regarding the world of Harry Potter. I love the inserted sarcastic comments from Harry and Ron and the forward by Dumbledore; they really give the book a more authentic feel, as if you actually reading Harry's personal school book. It's a wonderful book and a great addition to any Harry Potter fan's collection.
It's a wonderfully fulfilling and boastful thing to be able and describe to people what a Horkylump is, or a Biting Fairy, or the different breeds of Dragon. Though fairly short, this book gives detailed descriptions of the whimsical creatures that JK Rowling has included in the Harry Potter series.
this is a good book it is quite short but gives alot of background on the wizarding world wildlife
This was a great book. It was short and I wanted a little more information but it's still great.
My friend has this book and I love it. I am going to get it. I thougt the side notes that Ron and Harry made were funny. I love it.
