Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them , Newt Scamander's classic compendium of magical creatures, has delighted generations of wizarding readers. Now, in this updated edition with a new foreword by Newt himself and the unveiling of six beasts little known outside the American wizarding community, Muggles too have the chance to discover where the Thunderbird lives, what the Puffskein eats, and why shiny objects should always be kept away from the Niffler.

Proceeds from the sale of this book will go to Comic Relief and J.K. Rowling's international charity, Lumos, which will do magic beyond the powers of any wizard. If you feel that this is insufficient reason to part with your money, one can only hope that passing wizards feel more charitable if they see you being attacked by a Manticore.

This is an amazing book. I feel a little guilty that I love it even more than the original series! Fantastic Beasts and Where To find Them's world is huge, although it takes place all in New York City. It's a fun, exciting, and page-turning read that you will go to over and over again, falling in love with the characters each time. I really loved this book!

The screenplay is quite literally a word for word translation of the movie on which it is based. Unlike Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Fantastic Beasts only adds to the lore of our favorite magical world, and does not arguably damage them like Cursed Child is accused of doing. While there is a plethora of cute art in the book, it does feel like there is so much of it that it adds a good 20-30 pages.

A fun but unsurprising read, good for appreciating the directorial choices and art, but not much else. If you've already seen the movie and are looking for more, do not feel obligated to read this screenplay; you're not missing much.

I don't usually read scripts but I liked the movie and found it more enlightening after reading the screenplay. Maybe that's just because I didn't understand it half the time with their accents and the volume was super low because of my sleeping children ... well anyway, I recommend this for Harry Potter fans but it will be more enjoyable if you've seen the movie already. I'm looking forward to the rest of movies. I believe there are going to be 5 all together.
