There are three in particular you might have heard mentioned by certain Hogwarts students, and that you can add to your reading list too, including Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

    By StevesCreative
    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!
  • Cool

  • Clarification review

    By lgsus
    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.
  • I thought you already made the physical book

    A while ago in Universal studios I got a book called fantastic beasts and where to find them. It had a red cover with a (fake)rip on it. It contained info of all of those creatures, and I'm not sure why this is pre order because it should already be out.
