This book is a great companion to the Harry Potter series. You can use it two ways - when you are reading the books, and you come upon a word of which you'd like to know the definition, you can look it up in the book, or you can look through the words and definitions in the book, and it will tell you the exact book, page, and sentence that the word came from.

I bought this book at Christmas for my nine year old grandson, he is on book five of the series and had seen this book in the store. He really seems to be enjoying it and has used it with the current book and some of the previous books he had read. From his reaction I would recommend it, for the casual reader but also if you wanted to use it in the classroom.
