Are you trying to remember who Orla Quirke was, or wondering where the name “Hogwarts” came from? Does the Brotherhood of Goblins make you curious? Do you relish all the tiny details of the Harry Potter universe? Would you love to discover some of the additional background Rowling created and only revealed outside of the books themselves? That’s where the Lexicon comes in. It’s a quick reference to all the minutia and richness of the Harry Potter canon, with connections not only to the seven novels but also to the additional sources such as interviews, newsletters, and material Rowling created for the video games and films. The Lexicon leads you back into the magic of the books and gives you a new insight into Rowling’s creative mind.
