Harry Potter: A Journey Through the History of Magic by J.K. Rowling

Any fan of J.K. Rowling’s “Harry Potter” series will want to check out this delightful collection of materials published with the assistance of the British Library. Filled with photos of artifacts to illustrate magical terms used throughout Rowling’s books and copies of early drafts of Rowling’s preliminary book outlines, this book helps the reader to see how J.K. Rowling put together her amazing collection of stories about Harry Potter. My favorite part of the whole book was a page which showed an outline for one of her books that J.K. Rowling used to keep the story on track. It is no wonder that the books are considered to be some of the best-written books for youth when one considers the amount of research that went into the creation of each remarkable story. The book is one of the most attractive books I have seen recently. I highly recommend this book.

[If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try any of the Harry Potter novels, or Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, by J.K. Rowling.]
