    Not gonna lie, first thing I did when this came in the mail was pull out Tales of Beedle the Bard and read the tale of the Three Brothers in Hermione's voice.

    Just re read this one... Sometimes we forget that advices and snippets are sometimes annoying. And and as we grow older we realize it must be the way it should be or the context must be the way it should be. Don't get me wrong I don't understand myself either. Para maiba nmn, hehe! 😊

    Very different from what I was expecting. I didn't love them, but it was definitely cool to read more about Quidditch and The Fantastic Beasts. Didn't really like Dumbledore's commentary but that is mainly because I don't like books that have a second story outside of the margins.

    Ah ... this collection is such a casual reread for me that I actually forgot that I needed to write a review! It’s Harry Potter, so of course, it’s five stars from me. Not biased at all. I swear. I love rereading this collection when I’m in the mood to dip back into one of my prime obsessions, but I don’t have the time to commit to rereading the seven books.

It’s Harry Potter, so of course, it’s five stars from me. Not biased at all. I swear. I love rereading this collection when I’m in the mood to dip back into one of my prime obsessions, but I don’t have the time to commit to rereading the seven books. As I said in a previous review, one of the reasons why I love the HP series so much is how incredibly detailed and multifaceted its universe is. The fact that Jo Rowling can quite literally sit down and write a textbook, a library book, and a fairytale collection from this world — (which goes over such minute details as when wizards decided to put ‘cushioning charms’ on broomsticks to make them more comfortable) — is a testimony to how strong her worldbuilding is. Out of the three (Fantastic Beasts, Quidditch Through the Ages, and Beedle the Bard), my favorite would be the fairytales. Possibly this is because it has the most straightforward narrative — it’s a series of short stories, rather than an ‘informational’ piece — but I also think it’s because the fairytales reflect what I find most interesting about the wizarding world: its customs and prejudice. Dumbledore’s commentary on how wizards received and changed these tales to ‘hide’ opinions about Muggles (non-magic people) etc. is fascinating to me. I studied and wrote about real fairytales pretty extensively in college, and I’ve always been interested in how they reflect (and shape, in all honesty) the way that a culture thinks. Rowling does this so well here. Next, I probably most enjoy Quidditch Through the Ages. Given that I’m not a sports fan, you would think this would be tedious to me — but, believe it or not, this book is actually funny. Wizards have a propensity for setting things on fire during games. That’s all I’m going to say. Quidditch Through the Ages also gives, out of the three, the most extensive description of wizarding cultures outside of the UK. Very interesting to me. Although I’m tagging Fantastic Beasts as my least favorite, I do enjoy it. The way the magical creatures interweave with mythologies and the original book series does make me smile. I might simply have read it too many times, or possibly because I’ve been exposed to so many magical creatures via the new movies, I found myself pushing through this one a little bit. My favorite part, however, was Rowling’s new inclusion of North American creatures: any reference to the American school of magic is addictive to me. Like I said, I’m a nerd. This is the sort of collection that you want to read after you’ve read the Harry Potter series. Reading it beforehand, you will find that it’s just a collection of seemingly random information — after HP, you appreciate how it deepens, widens, and enriches the global wizarding world in Rowling’s series. Overall, a wonderful, quick, and well-written read!

    My boyfriend gifted me this edition on Yule 2017 and I loved it! I was a bit disappointed because the Fantastic Beasts book does not include Harry and Ron's notes but besides that the set is fantastic and really well made :)

    A quick, easy, and delightful read! Easy to imagine because I saw the movie first but it was nice to read the dialogue and it was totally JK Rowling's style which I have missed! Book given by Phuong

    I've never read any of these three books before, and this set was perfect. The books are very elegant and sturdy and look lovely next to my HP books! Super quick reads and a lot of fun to round out the HP world even more. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: Probably my favorite. So cool to read about all the magical creatures!

    If you're a fan of Harry Potter I recommend these three books. They don't have an order to read them, but I suggest reading them after you read the Harry Potter series. Each book is a little over 100 pages long which sometimes works and other times seems like J.K. Rowling could of added more to her universe. None of these are that great, but meta wise they are cleaver. Giving this edition a 5 stars because they are really nice looking books and organized well too. 4 stars for the series overall.

    I've been wanting to re-read the Harry Potter series but my books are buried by my TBR piles. This was a nice little fix to tide me over. The Quiddich book was a bit "Meh" but I really enjoyed the other two books. I'd been curious about the animal book as they are now filming the prequel movie. I also have a different, limited edition of Beedle and Bard but had not read it until now. Enjoyable reads, even the footnotes are fun.

    Love it! Absolutely perfect trio of books! Easy read and also a fun read. Descriptions of the invention of Quidditch and also descriptions of the fantastic beasts that were introduced in the Harry Potter series.

    AMAZING... There are three books in the series. The first one is 'The Tales of Beedle the Bard' which is basically the myths and legends of the Wizarding World. The second and my personal favourite is 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them' which teaches you all about the creatures of the Wizarding World (Nifflers Fan!!!). The last and most informative is ' Quidditch through the Ages'. It teaches you all about the most famous and exhilarating sport of the Wizarding World, Quidditch. P.S: If yo AMAZING...

    I simply cannot get enough of J.K. Rowling’s writings. Sadly I think I have now exhausted every resource related to the magical world, but fortunately the release of the screenplay for FBAWTFT2 (and the film itself) is only three months away! And in one month, we get CS4 Lethal White. It is going to be a magical autumn!

    Absolutely gorgeous editions (the end papers!!!!). Definitely a must for any Harry Potter fan. Fantastic Beasts: Love all the descriptions and additions. Super cute illustration here and there. Quidditch: I'll never give a fuck about any real sport, but I am a diehard Quidditch fan~ like the humor here too! Tales: These are all so charming! And the Dumbledore commentary totally made me lose my rag and blub. Bless him.

    J.K. Rowling has the best imagination ever! I am very biased when it comes to Harry-Potter-related books but you can't help but get giddy over this set. This has been one of the most worthy purchases (or investment, perhaps?) I've made. I can only imagine myself reading The Tales of Beedle the Bard to my future kids. Ha, they'd thought we live in the magical world. Nonetheless, it's great to have this kind of fantasy into our system. All three books are a delight to read. Rowling is very clever J.K.

Rowling is very clever in incorporating Muggle myths (e.g. Loch Ness) into the magical world. I hope there will be more books from the Hogwarts Library to be made available to us, Muggles. I would very much like to own a Care of Magical Creatures book (complete with sharp teeth/fangs, please). Or Herbology, or Divination.. (It doesn't really matter as long as it's from Hogwarts)

    Each book had their own highlights that were particular interesting. But overall, they were okay... and that's it. Sadly not as excellent as I had hoped and wished them to be. Quidditch was my favorite.

The content of the books themselves: Fantastic Beasts is a lovely little encyclopedia type book with descriptions that make me want to get out my pencil and doodle the creatures. This book contains my favorite little easter eggs in the form of scribblings by the golden trio. It's also actually very useful. Over the course of seven books, especially if you're plowing through a quick reread like I enjoy doing, it can be a bit easy to forget descriptions of creatures when later referenced, or simply enjoyable to look up creatures that were named in the books but never elaborated upon until this little side edition. Quidditch Through The Ages was, surprisingly, my favorite book of the trio. Quidditch was interesting to be sure, but I'm not much of a sports fan in real life or in novels, so I admit I do at times glaze over when its described in the main series. Being able to read in-depth about the "history" of the sport gave it much more interest for me personally, as well as another opportunity to be agog at the absolute marvel that is Rowling's deep world-building abilities. Tales of Beedle the Bard was probably the most nostalgic of the three. When I read about Fantastic Beasts being referenced in the Potter books, I often imagined it as a weightier tome. However, the Beedle book was described as a small book of fairy tales, so holding it in my hand in real life in this small, hardback version with its little black and white pictures and homey feel seemed exactly right. I couldn't have asked for a better little compliment to the Deathly Hallows. The tales inside are lovely, seeming like Aesop's Wizard Fables.

    My favorite one out of the collection was The Tales of Beedle the Bard. Honestly, I expected a little more—especially from ‘The Tales of Beedle the Bard’, & ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’. The Bard is supposed to be on par with The Brothers Grim, Aesop, & Hans Christian Anderson, so it seems like there should have been a larger collection of tales, or it should have been called a selection of tales or the most popular tales, instead of it being the whole collection.

Similarly, each description in Fantastic Beasts is extremely brief when you remember that this is Newt’s studies on each animal. I find it hard to believe that he wouldn’t have written more. Again, it would have made more sense if they had presented it as an abridged version of the book. Also, I think there should be illustrations for all of the creatures—with perhaps exceptions for the ones adept at hiding—and they should have looked more like field sketches. But it’s Harry Potter & fun magic, so I did enjoy this book.
