Add to wishlist Show book details

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a spin-off from the books in Harry Potter series written by J. K. Rowling, it is planned to be one of the books Harry and his friends use themselves. Rowling prefers to write about magical creatures as she sees it a fun topic for which she had already developed a lot of information in earlier books. The book benefits the charity Comic Relief where more than 80% of the sale of this book will go directly to poor children in various places around the world.

The book encloses history of Magizoology and describes 85 magical species found around the world, it is considered the most complete listing of imaginary creatures available as it contains both familiar beasts, such as unicorns and dragons, and unfamiliar ones, such as Flobberworms and Mackled Malaclaws. The writer lists the beasts in an alphabetical order and gives full description about each one, she also includes a rating indicating how dangerous each of these beasts is to non-magic folks, or Muggles. The information found in the book was the result of observations made by the author over years of travel across five continents.

The book revolves around Harry Potter, his friend Ron Weasley, Newt Scamander, Professor Dumbledore (who wrote the Foreword), and all of the minor characters who are always found in Rowling's world. The novel takes place among witches and wizards where magical beings of all sorts exist side by side with ordinary beings. Rowling gives her creatures materialistic characteristics to make them appear as if they exist in the real world, for example, she let the Leprechaun lives only in Ireland, and the Tebo lives in the Congo and Zaire.
