J.K. Rowling – Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them

Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them

Considering this has been out for so long and been sitting on my shelf pretty much since it was released, I can’t believe I haven’t read it properly. I think I flipped through it quickly when it was bought, but it didn’t have a ‘read’ date on Goodreads. And since I have 2 days left to read 3 books in my 2017 challenge, it seemed like this would be perfect.

I found this book quite informative, reading a bit more about creatures you hear about during the Harry Potter books/movies. I do wish I’d read it properly before I saw the Fantastic Beasts film though as I would have had more of an idea what the creatures were.

My main complaint with this book was that it was just text. I know there’s now an illustrated version, but I did think there might have been some sketches in of some of the creatures and I found it a bit disappointing that there weren’t. I did, however, like the little doodles that had been ‘added by Harry and Ron’. Like this delightful one:

Childish but fun nonetheless.

Being so short and with such large text, it was a quick read and quite pleasant, but I think I will enjoy the illustrated version much more!
