The Hogwarts Library books:

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Flipping through the pages of Newt's famous journal, you'll journey around the globe and discover the many and varied creatures that he made it his life's work to study and protect. Some of the beasts will be familiar to fans of the Wizarding World – the Hippogriff, the Niffler, the Hungarian Horntail… while others will surprise even the most ardent amateur Magizoologist.

Quidditch Through the Ages

Do you know why refereeing a Quidditch match was once a task for only the bravest witches and wizards, or how to tell a Transylvanian Tackle from a Woollongong Shimmy? In this enlightening and highly popular Hogwarts library book, Kennilworthy Whisp reveals the daring highs and dangerous lows of the glorious game of Quidditch.

The Tales of Beedle the Bard

In Babbitty Rabbitty and her Cackling Stump, listeners will hear of a foolish king and a mischievous washerwoman, and then finally get to listen to the most iconic of Beedle’s stories – The Tales of the Three Brothers, featured in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. With each of the tales accompanied by wise and whimsical notes from Albus Dumbledore, listeners will be able to experience these tales from the Wizarding World as they've never heard them before.
