Product description

This is a Harry Potter quiz book like no other. It won't be asking you questions like "what school did Harry Potter go to?" (If you are a Harry Potter fan, then of course you know the answer!) Rather it asks questions which will develop your literary appreciation of the Harry Potter books and your general knowledge of the Harry Potter phenomenon. Some of these questions are easy, quite a few are fiendishly difficult, and several of them really don't have simple answers, but thinking about possible answers is what it is all about. Work through this quiz book (with an eye on the answers) and come out the other end with a much better understanding of the phenomenon that is Harry Potter. After each question, space is provided in which you may jot down your preliminary answer. In this quiz book there is a focus on the language used by J. K. Rowling. From alchemy to whomping via such gems as hallows and knickerbockers the books use a range of words which are not part of the everyday word stock of most speakers of English, and certainly not of most children. True fans of the Harry Potter series will want to know them! There is a mass of information around the world of Harry Potter, some of it trivia (but fun!), some key to our appreciation of the books. Also fans have realized that the books have some serious points to make. No book achieves anything approaching the success of the Harry Potter series unless it includes something that makes us all think. This Harry Potter Quiz Book aims to draw your attention to some of these big questions. Knowing the name of Harry Potter's school is not likely to change the life of any one of us, but thinking about the moral issues raised in the booksmight do just that.

My daughter, the die-hard Harry Potter fan for whom this was purchased, was very very disappointed with it. She wanted a quiz book about who, what, where & when in the world of Harry Potter. What she got is a (short) book with some very generic questions, most of which have only a slight connection with HP.

Not recommended at all.
