The three extra Harry Potter books, written by JK Rowling in aid of Comic Relief, were finally made available digitally to coincide with the charity event this year. I snapped them up, doing my bit for charity, and getting some extended insight into the Harry Potter universe. I love books that extend upon a series like this, and I particularly like the HP world, so it’s win win.
This one is short and sweet, a guide to some of the magical creatures that they’ve taken great pains to hide from us Muggles. It’s lovely to sense the imagination that’s gone into creating these 70+ species, as well as enjoying where they crossover to the real world. The Dodo, for example - not extinct, just able to hide itself from human eyes.
Lovely to read, with bonus scribblings from Harry and his friends, this only took about an hour to devour and was enjoyable throughout.
