Description

A perennial bestseller in the wizarding world and one of the most popular books in the Hogwarts school library, Quidditch Through the Ages contains all you will ever need to know about the history, the rules - and the breaking of the rules - of the noble sport of Quidditch. Packed with fascinating facts, this definitive guide by the esteemed Kennilworthy Whisp charts the game's history from its early origins in the medieval mists on Queerditch Marsh through to the modern-day sport loved by so many wizard and Muggle families around the world. With comprehensive coverage of famous Quidditch teams, the commonest fouls, the development of racing brooms, and much more, this is a must-have sporting bible for all Harry Potter fans and Quidditch lovers, whether the weekend amateur or the seasoned Chudley Cannons season-ticket holder.

Narrated by Andrew Lincoln, this is the first audiobook edition of the famous sports book ever to be released. Andrew's film credits include Love Actually and Made in Dagenham, and he has received critical acclaim for his portrayal of Rick Grimes in the TV show The Walking Dead.

Dip in to discover everything you ever wanted to know about the wizarding world's most thrilling sport ...
