    You've always dreamed of studying at Hogwarts so why not pick up one of the textbooks that the students read? J.K. Rowling's Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (which inspired the hit film of the same name starring Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander, the 'author' of this book) is a miscellany of all kinds of magical creatures.

    An approved textbook at Hogwarts that even Albus Dumbledore claims no wizarding household should be without, it's an indispensable spotter's guide that contains profiles and facts about critters including Nifflers, Thunderbirds and Hippogriffs. There's so much for Muggles to read about.

    This new paperback edition has a foiled jacket and features the recently revised 2017 text that introduced six new creatures from the North American continent. It even has a new foreword from Newt that sheds light on the events surrounding a serious breach in the International Statute of Secrecy which took place in New York in the 1920s (if you've seen the film, you know what this is regarding...)
