The powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald has been captured in New York with the help of Newt Scamander. But Grindelwald escapes custody and sets about gathering followers to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings. In an effort to thwart Grindelwald’s plans, Albus Dumbledore enlists Newt, his former Hogwarts student, who agrees to help once again, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world.

Harry Potter knew nothing about magic. He was stuck with the decidedly un-magical Dursleys, where he slept in a closet and ate their leftovers…until an invitation to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry changed everything. As it turns out, Harry's already famous, and he's about to discover a world he never knew existed --- one that will bring him closer to his own destiny.

THE TALES OF BEEDLE THE BARD, a wizarding classic, first came to Muggle readers' attention in the book known as HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS. Now, thanks to Hermione Granger's new translation from the ancient runes, we present this stunning edition with an introduction, notes, and illustrations by J.K. Rowling, and extensive commentary by Albus Dumbledore. Never before have Muggles been privy to these richly imaginative tales: "The Wizard and the Hopping Pot," "The Fountain of Fair Fortune," "The Warlock's Hairy Heart," "Babbitty Rabbitty and Her Cackling Stump," and of course "The Tale of the Three Brothers." But not only are they the equal of fairy tales we know and love, reading them gives new insight into the wizarding world.
