Great price and great condition, but...

I was really bummed when I saw a child scribbled all over the first few pages of the book. Other than the scribbles the book feels like it was barely touched.

Not what I expected

Thought I was getting the illustrated version. This is much smaller.

Only 3.99 brand new

I overpaid for this. It isn’t even a real book. It’s more of a pamphlet

Fantastic beasts and where to find them

I love this book exclamation what a fun read and it arrived on time with no knicks or any damage exclamation very happy.

Makes the Wizarding World Even More Realistic To Us Muggles

I hate to give away some of the books more interesting points, but I LOVE the way this book is written to explain away muggle sightings of magical beasts such as the Loch Ness Monster, and other creatures featured in muggle "fairy stories" such as fairies, unicorns, trolls, etc. It also explains how such creatures can really exist without our knowledge. The Foreward by Dumbledore that mentions the "Thiefs Curse" on anyone reading the book who did not purchase it is also cute. The notes by Harry, Ron, and Hermoine are amusing as well.Another benefit for any reader of Harry Potter books is that it gives one a greater understanding of why creatures like the centaurs in the first book and the mermaids in the fourth book mostly want little to do with humans. Of course this portrayal of the centaurs behavior is only in the book and not the movie, and therefore wouldn't be at all intriguing to someone who has only seen the movie, but only to a true addict like myself. I can't wait till the 5th book is released - I WANT MORE!

Wanna know what a Gnome is? Or read Harry & Ron's notes?

This book is great for HP fans! Learn what a Imp is or learn about Muggle awareness. Learn about almost every beast in the magical world with this. Learn what a Doxy is or a Flobberworm. Harry's world is full of make-belive animals. With over 75 animals to learn about you will be amazed how JK thought of it! It gots a Foreword by Dumboldore. This book gives you a understanding of HP's world in the books.
