Compiled and written by Jody Revenson, this book is the perfect gift for those interested in the ideas, creation and filming thrown into the magical world of Harry Potter. The author has created a new perspective in the wizarding realm based off of the eight movies, film adaptions of the original series by J.K. Rowling. With an in-depth story behind each aspect and feature of the film, I definitely enjoyed the book. The pop-ups, lift-the-flaps, stickers and easter eggs throughout the book kept my interest with each turn of the page. Being a fan myself, I was able to explore the color and reality of Hogwarts with this interactive set.

Each secret behind the filming of Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is revealed with intricate detail throughout the book. It was interesting to learn the process necessary to create this almost alternate reality. Full of magical curiosities, it explains the fantasy of the films in a unique way that draws the reader in. Overall, it provides a fun, entertaining experience for any age to enjoy.
