Harry Potter School Books - New editions available 6th July 2009 (Bloomsbury)

Packed with fascinating facts and intriguing information about the world of Harry Potter, and published in aid of Comic Relief, Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them and Quidditch Through the Ages are essential additions to the collections of all Harry Potter fans. Click here to see what JK Rowling has to say about these books.

A copy of Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them resides in almost every wizarding household in the country. Now Muggles too have the chance to discover where the Quintaped lives, what the Puffskein eats and why it is best not to leave milk out for a Knarl.
Proceeds from the sale of this book will go to Comic Relief, which means that the pounds and Galleons you exchange for it will do magic beyond the powers of any wizard. If you feel that this is insufficient reason to part with your money, I can only hope that passing wizards feel more charitable if they ever see you being attacked by a Manticore - Albus Dumbledore

If you have ever asked yourself where the Golden Snitch came from, how the Bludgers came into existence or why the Wigtown Wanderers have pictures of meat cleavers on their robes, you need Quidditch Through the Ages. This edition is a copy of the volume in Hogwarts School Library, where it is consulted by young Quidditch fans on an almost daily basis.
Proceeds from the sale of this book will go to Comic Relief, who will use your money to continue improving and saving lives – work that is even more important and astonishing than the three and a half second capture of the Golden Snitch by Roderick Plumpton in 1921 - Albus Dumbledore

£1.15 from the sale of each book will go to Comic Relief, who will give the money it gets from the sale of these books to projects helping some of the poorest and most vulnerable people in the poorest countries of the world.
