Este fue un libro súper divertido de leer, sobre todo porque tienen un montón de material extra sobre el mundo de Harry Potter que nunca había visto la luz: ilustraciones de J. K. Rowling, manuscritos originales, escenas que fueron borradas, notas del editor, incluso una carta del guionista de to...

I'm going to be honest, I think that if I read pretty much ANYTHING Harry Potter that I would like it. Even if it sucked pretty hardcore, I would probably like it to some degree. Anytime I am able to be back in the Harry Potter world, I am a happy girl.
This book is a really cool mash-up of Ha...

But again, this is really beauti...

Fun collection, great for fans of Harry Potter who won't be able to visit the exhibition in the British Library in the foreseeable future. I'm a big enough fan to have read all of the books and seen all of the movies so this book had added details that I was not aware of. For the super fan this m...

While this was meant for a younger audience I absolutely loved reading about the history of the magical subjects and seeing what the British Library had put together for the 20 year celebration of Harry Potter. I smiled so much while reading this book and it was nice to delve back into the Potter...
