Just finished reading this. Do not confuse with the original play/movie. This is the actual textbook style writing giving the breakdown of all the magical beasts. Reads like a textbook, not a story. A must read for exact clarification on the beasts from the screenplay. Lore fans will appreciate this.
Builds on the already magical world of Harry Potter! You learn more about all the beasts and creatures.
I loved the original book as a kid and I love this new and revised addition as a grown up kid! I do miss the scribbles and drawings by Rowling, but the detailed renderings of the beasts are beautiful!
