    This is a terrific addition to the Potter universe

    This is a terrific addition to the Potter universe as the depth rivals that of the films. Little things like "ads" for magical products and the Weasley's Wizard Wheezes catalogue add incredible layers to the interactive tome. Fans will remove all sorts of items like Slughorn's Apothecary labels of products used in the movies. There is plenty of information and articles on how the films made the Roweling realm realistic, which include supporting photos, salt as snow and much more.

    Sent to me by the publisher, you can't help but tear this fabulous entry apart. My spouse cringed when I ripped open the cellophane and had cardiac arrest when I pulled out Potter's acceptance letter to attend Hogswarts Hall; though he also marveled at the details of the castle and cave, etc. and touched the pullouts (he cannot have my ticket to the Yule Ball). In fairness, he laughs at people who claim they owned that first Spiderman (see Amazing Fantasy #15) as he once did, but admits his copy was worth chump change because his mom bought it for him at a bazaar and he read it as a tweener a zillion times. Now if I can only obtain a second ticket to the Yule Ball so he can escort me; perhaps an order of Pumpkin Juice or with the help of Professor Snape. This is a great holiday gift for that young fan or in my case the ancient collector (wonder if there is Potter could put the cellophane back on).

    Excellent book, great for Granpaws who have to know all the Potter stuff

    I bought this book when I was picking up the latest release of the DH 1. To say I was pleased is putting it mildly. I highly urge the seniors out there to add this to their shelves to keep abreast of the youngn's

    Awesome book for Potter fans

    Besides being a huge Potter fan, I am also involved in costuming and production for theatre performances, so I have loved this book! I have only had it a few days, but I haven't been able to put it down. My other Potter nerd friends have also been quite enthralled. There are so many interesting fact, interviews, stories, and pictures. Definitely worth buying

    An amazing book for the whole family!

    I got this book for the family for Christmas and everyone is reading it. It's a must-have book for any Harry Potter fan. It explains a lot of behind the scenes of the movies, and the extra pull-out items were fantastic. It's such a magical book to own. I recommend it to anyone.

    You have got to see this book!

    If you are a big fan of Harry Potter, you will love this book. I just know it. There is so much in this book about the beginning of the movies and how things were made, it will take you by surprise.

    I don't want to tell you too much about it. Get the book and enjoy!

    Totally awesome!

    I got this book a while back when it first came out and I must say that it is one of the best books I ever got! From the outside, it may not look like a big book, but let me tell YOU it is completely packed with back-stage pictures, stories, pull-outs of flyers and letters, and more. I had such a great time reading about how the magic was created for these movies and how the directors and producers came to all of their decisions. I can't wait for the sequel of this book to come out in october!
