Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
J. K. Rowling's two new offerings have immediately catapulted to the top of all the bestseller charts. These are must-purchases for Harry Potter fans. All proceeds will go to Comic Relief UK, a group that helps fund needy children in the world's poorest cultures. Quidditch looks like a well-worn library book, complete with a replica of "Property of Hogwarts Library" stamp, wrinkles, a list of borrowers and due dates, and a dire warning from librarian Irma Prince about consequences for defacing or mistreating the book. Professor Dumbledore has written a thorough foreword that explains why Muggles are about to learn the sport of Quidditch. The pages are crammed full of pure imaginative delight. The history of the sport, from the first flying broomstick in A.D. 962 to the development of the Nimbus 1000 racing broom, roles of the players, techniques, and more are included. Fantastic Beasts is actually Harry Potter's own copy of the book, reproduced. It is generously inscribed with comments and notes from Harry, Dan Weasley (his book fell apart), Hermione, and others. This is the 52nd edition of the book, which is a study of magical beasts (MAGIZOOLOGY), beginning with an explanation of what actually constitutes a beast. The beasts themselves are described and then rated with an M.O.M. classification (Ministry of Magic): X = boring, XXXXX = known wizard killer, impossible to train or domesticate. These two slim volumes will have to tide Harry Potter fans over until the next installment of the Harry Potter series, which is due out in November. KLIATT Codes: JSA—Recommended for junior and senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2001, Scholastic, 56p. illus,19cm, $3.99. Ages 13 to adult. Reviewer: Rita M. Fontinha; Lib. Media Spec., Norwood H.S. Norwood, MA, May 2001 (Vol. 35 No. 3)
School Library Journal
Gr 4-8-These slim paperbacks are made to look like actual Hogwarts tomes, complete with creased covers and plenty of marginalia scribbled by Harry and other students. Fabulous Beasts, a facsimile of Harry Potter's very own textbook, contains descriptions of 75 magical beasts, written in a wonderfully dry yet droll style by a renowned magizoologist. Quidditch is the facsimile of a Hogwarts library book, which had to be literally pried from the hands of librarian Madam Pince. It gives a comprehensive history of the game and its rules, as well as a rundown of each of the 13 league teams of Britain and Ireland. Harry Potter fans who pride themselves on knowing every minute bit of Hogwarts trivia will devour both books. From Professor Dumbledore's introductions to the price listed on the back cover (14 Sickles 3 Knuts), readers will find a wealth of detailed magical lore and laugh-out-loud humor. Neither book is as gripping as the actual series, of course, but fans who are waiting for the fifth installment will be entertained by these volumes in the meantime.-Eva Mitnick, Los Angeles Public Library Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

    can she get any better?

    Just when I thought J.K. has done it all, here comes Quidditch Through the Ages! She's written 6 great books so far, & now she's publishing Harry's textbooks. I know we're all waiting with bated breath for the Half-Blood Prince's(may he get a Dementor's Kiss)copy of Advanced Potion-Making!

    I really liked this book

    I give this book four stars because it was very interesting and had facts about quidditch that just blew my mind. Ever wonder how quidditch got a golden snitch, or how it got its name? Well you will find some very interesting facts in this book. If u buy the book it also gives part of the money earned to Comic Relief which is a foundation to help needy kids. All I have to say is too bad it is soo short and a easy read.

    Something to relax with...

    This 'textbook' is another wonderful creation from the mind of the brilliantly creative Rowling. Although it is definently not as addictive, it still quenches the thirst of those eagerly awaiting her next full length Harry Potter offering. The only problem with it is the feeling that it was written purely as a marketing tool. This aside, Rowlings comfortable pace and clever ideas and touches make this a nice, thoroughly enjoyable read. The children will of course love it, and it is a short amusing book for adults.
