Reviews for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
Made me smile :)
Such a sweet and interesting book. Definitely an uplifting read that can be useful after reading something depressing or a bit heavy. Made me smile several times, and just thinking about it gets me in a better mood. There is no doubt that I would recommend this to anyone who enjoyed the Harry Potter series. :) by Nina Midtsian Harmens

This is undoubtedly my favorite HP book, beside HP 1-7. It contains extraordinary introduction written by Newt Scamander, and it gives brief look of the history of relation between wizards and magical creatures. Then we have magnificent A-Z description of 75 creatures, and each one will amuse You, I can guarantee that! One more full strike by J.K., hope she'll make some more of this, I'll be first in line to buy it! by Nikola Ilic
