Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
Genre: Fiction (although I wish it wasn’t)
Age Recommendation: EVERYONE
I cannot believe that I forgot about this book. A very nice family friend gave me this book as a gift and another one: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them for my birthday! For those of you who don’t know (tsk tsk), these books are mentioned in the Harry Potter series and I am elated that J.K Rowling decided to actually write them! I hope she publishes The Monster Book of Monsters next. 😉
All in all, this was a great book and I found it fascinating. My only complaint: IT ISN’T REAL! I have long wished that Harry Potter truly existed… 😦
Basically, this book starts with the evolution of the broomstick: the flying one that is…
J.K. Rowling has drawn some wonderful diagrams depicting the various types of broomsticks in the wizarding world and how they changed over time. The next chapter is about games that involved broomsticks and different types of balls. It covers ancient games from different countries which leads into how Quidditch was formed.
Later on, the book talks about the different Quidditch teams and the details of each one. It also informs one about how the racing broom was formed.
Personally, I loved this book and I think that all Harry Potter fans should read this as well.
