If the latest Harry Potter book, the Cursed Child, based on the stage production playing now at the Palace Theatre in London isn’t enough to fulfil your need for more Harry, then these latest collections of short stories should be enough to satisfy you for a little while – at least until Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them rolls into theatres later this year.
The books are based on the writings of J.K Rowling that she’s published previously only through her Pottermore website. The books are available to pre-order for $4.99, there’s three titles:
- Hogwarts: An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide Hogwarts An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide takes you on a journey to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. You’ll venture into the Hogwarts grounds, become better acquainted with its more permanent residents, learn more about lessons and discover secrets of the castle . . . all at the turn of a page.
- Short Stories from Hogwarts of Power, Politics and Pesky PoltergeistsThese stories of power, politics and pesky poltergeists give you a glimpse into the darker side of the wizarding world, revealing the ruthless roots of Professor Umbridge, the lowdown on the Ministers for Magic and the history of the wizarding prison Azkaban. You will also delve deeper into Horace Slughorn’s early years as Potions master at Hogwarts – and his acquaintance with one Tom Marvolo Riddle.
- Short Stories from Hogwarts of Heroism, Hardship and Dangerous HobbiesThese stories of heroism, hardship and dangerous hobbies profile two of the Harry Potter stories’ most courageous and iconic characters: Minerva McGonagall and Remus Lupin. J.K. Rowling also gives us a peek behind the closed curtains of Sybill Trelawney’s life, and you’ll encounter the reckless, magical-beast-loving Silvanus Kettleburn along the way.
If you’re a mad keen Harry Potter fan, then these will definitely be right up your alley. Head over to Google Play and grab them – and maybe Tales of Beedle the Bard or the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them screenplay too while you’re at it.
