" More detailed than ever before!Although I originally read these when they first came out it was nice to see more things added. I really enjoyed the forward by Newton and the afterwards of Dumbledore. " said.

"I had really high expectations for this set and it fell a little short. In retrospect, I should have known that these wouldn't be fully fleshed out, but it was still a bit of a disappointment that Fantastic Beasts wasn't treated more as a scientific study. It really read more like a tour book for muggles...whereas I really wanted an encyclopedia with illustrations.

Beedle the Bard I could take or leave, there were some good stories in here that I enjoyed.

Of the three, I probably enjoyed Quidditch throughout the Ages the most, which surprised me.

Overall, I'm not sure that I would repurchase, but they were a fast read with enjoyable content. I'm just not sure that dedicated Potterheads were really the intended audience. So, if you have a niece or nephew just getting into the series, this would probably be better suited for them.

" Just re read this one... Sometimes we forget that advices and snippets are sometimes annoying. And and as we grow older we realize it must be the way it should be or the context must be the way it should be. Don't get me wrong I don't understand myself either. Para maiba nmn, hehe! " said.

" I really enjoyed reading this and it was nice to have some information about the rest of the world those stories are set in. However I need about 2000 more books about the magic world of Harry Potter because it's awesome " said.

" These are fabulous. Fantastic Beasts had me laughing out loud for ages particularly the bit about a monk stating that a ferret shouted at him "Get out of it, baldy". You have to read the book to get the full effect - I was literally crying. Quidditch Through The Ages was sheer genius (again, quite comical) and The Tales Of Beedle The Bard is beautiful in my opinion. These books are brilliantly illustrated. I brought this set on a whim and I'm very glad about it too. " said.

"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.
" said.

"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.
" said.

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