Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by “Newt Scamander” (J. K. Rowling)- Mini Book Review

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is supposedly a textbook at the students use in Hogwarts. The book written by Newton Scamander talks about the creatures he encountered while travelling around the world.FBWFT

This book provides a list and explanation about magical beasts in the Harry Potter universe. It also tells the reader the definition of beasts, beeing and whatnot. In this version, there is info on 6 other beasts that wasn’t on the other editions. There’s everything from the hippogriff to the niffler.

The introduction was most likely my most loved part of the book, telling the tale of Newt’s reason for its creation and his arguments with the Ministry on their classifications for the beasts described in this book. I also really love the little quiz at the end of the book to see if I was Magizoologist material, I found that to be just so cute.

Frankly, Fantastic Beasts is still only a companion piece rather than a standalone. But an amazing companion piece nonetheless and I recommend it to every Harry Potter fan out there.

I give this book 4/5 stars.

Bye, keep on reading.
