Read an Excerpt

No Muggle Prime Minister has ever set foot in the Ministry of Magic, for reasons most succinctly summed up by ex-Minister Dugald McPhail (term of office 1858-1865): "their puir wee braines couldnae cope wi’ it."

Most of the facts about Horace Slughorn, Peeves, Dolores Umbridge were really fascinating and helped me understand their character profile

How could I not love this? It was short but enjoyable and there were some things that made me laugh. I loved the description of Dolores Umbridge, "Dolores Umbridge may have looked like an iced cupcake, but she was anything but sweet." I can't think of a better description for her, the fact that she's a former Slytherin explains a lot. The Chapter on Horace Slughorn proves that not all former Slytherins are bad or evil. The history of the formation of the Ministry For Magic and how Azkaban came to be was really interesting. While these stories are short, they pack in a lot of information.

These are not "short stories", they are merely biographies, a list of fact regarding 5 characters. I'm really disappointed -- the title was misleading.
