"This is just a cute collection of books from the Wizarding World:
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Thenich is just a list of magical animals and their habits. It also includes information about why certain creatures are classified as "beasts" or "beings". Honestly it's not that interesting in the least.

Tales of Beedle the Bard which is a collection of "fairytales" annotated by Albus Dumbledore. I LOVE fairytales and this was really cute. I genuinely liked the stories and would read them again.

Quidditch Through The Ages is exactly what it sounds like; a history of Quidditch. It was interesting. If you want to learn all the details about a fictional game because you, like me, are a completionist then it's definitely worth your time.

"My favorite one out of the collection was The Tales of Beedle the Bard.

Honestly, I expected a little more—especially from ‘The Tales of Beedle the Bard’, & ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’. The Bard is supposed to be on par with The Brothers Grim, Aesop, & Hans Christian Anderson, so it seems like there should have been a larger collection of tales, or it should have been called a selection of tales or the most popular tales, instead of it being the whole collection. Similarly, each description in Fantastic Beasts is extremely brief when you remember that this is Newt’s studies on each animal. I find it hard to believe that he wouldn’t have written more. Again, it would have made more sense if they had presented it as an abridged version of the book. Also, I think there should be illustrations for all of the creatures—with perhaps exceptions for the ones adept at hiding—and they should have looked more like field sketches.

But it’s Harry Potter & fun magic, so I did enjoy this book.

"This handsome edition was one of the most fun and fanciful additions to my bookshelf in the last five years. The notes by characters are wonderful little surprises, the writing is classic Rowling whimsy, and the set creates a feeling - however short - of really being part of the Hogwarts universe.

The content of the books themselves:

Fantastic Beasts is a lovely little encyclopedia type book with descriptions that make me want to get out my pencil and doodle the creatures. This book contains my favorite little easter eggs in the form of scribblings by the golden trio. It's also actually very useful. Over the course of seven books, especially if you're plowing through a quick reread like I enjoy doing, it can be a bit easy to forget descriptions of creatures when later referenced, or simply enjoyable to look up creatures that were named in the books but never elaborated upon until this little side edition.

Quidditch Through The Ages was, surprisingly, my favorite book of the trio. Quidditch was interesting to be sure, but I'm not much of a sports fan in real life or in novels, so I admit I do at times glaze over when its described in the main series. Being able to read in-depth about the "history" of the sport gave it much more interest for me personally, as well as another opportunity to be agog at the absolute marvel that is Rowling's deep world-building abilities.

Tales of Beedle the Bard was probably the most nostalgic of the three. When I read about Fantastic Beasts being referenced in the Potter books, I often imagined it as a weightier tome. However, the Beedle book was described as a small book of fairy tales, so holding it in my hand in real life in this small, hardback version with its little black and white pictures and homey feel seemed exactly right. I couldn't have asked for a better little compliment to the Deathly Hallows. The tales inside are lovely, seeming like Aesop's Wizard Fables.

" Loved all 3, specially the Tales of Beedle the Bard! " said.

" Very enjoyable additions to the Harry Potter series and wizard/witch world. My favorite was "The Tales of Beetle the Bard." " said.

" Each book had their own highlights that were particular interesting. But overall, they were okay... and that's it. Sadly not as excellent as I had hoped and wished them to be. Quidditch was my favorite. " said.

" 4,5 Quidditch a través de los tiempos 4/5 Animales fantásticos y dónde encontrarlos 5/5 Los cuentos de Beedle el Bardo 5/5 " said.

"It was quite fantastic, and it made me feel so proud that i love HP so much. Quidditch fans all over the world will know all they want to know about this sport from Quidditch Through the Ages, which along with being exciting, is very informative on the basis of Quidditch. The Tales of Beedle the Bard is a book composed solely out of creativity and humour (not in the case of the story The Warlock's Hairy Heart) and displays the vastness of Rowling's imagination, whereas Care of Magical Creature fans or anima lovers wil find Fantastic Beasts and where to find them a very interesting (and legal) read!
