This is a must have for any Harry Potter fan and Hogwarts student. It’s just like having a real life textbook from the Hogwarts library. It’s full of real life spells, ancient runes, alchemy, and much more. It’s also full of the history of magic in Britain going back thousands of years.
And after you’ve read it, you’ll be ready for anything that a Hogwarts Professor can throw at you, and you’ll receive an outstanding in your OWL’s.
It is a pretty thick book, but if you’re anything like Hermione it will give you a little “…bit of light reading.” And you don’t have to memorise it all, you can just use it as a reference book.
