These little charity books written by J.K. Rowling to help raise money are super cute - and what makes them even more fun to read - are the side commentaries from Harry, Ron, and Hermione in the side margins of the book. This one would later lead to an expansion movie series of the Wizarding World, that is a fun ride. But don't expect to pick up this book and find any story of Newt Scamander - it's all about the creatures in this book.

If you're following along with the screenplay series and the movies for this title, I suggest reading this book a few times or keeping a copy handy so you can keep up with the beasts. Great read.

Great fictional encyclopedia for magical beasts, I loved reading it. I don't get why people are saying that it is exactly like the movie, the movie is a story about the "author" Newt Scamander.

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!
