Review: J K Rowling's Wizarding World: The Dark Arts: A Movie Scrapbook

Another book to add to the many associated with the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts movies.

J K Rowling's Wizarding World: The Dark Arts: A Movie Scrapbook offers a look at various darker aspects of the wizarding world.

Think potions and horcruxes, basilisks, obsurus, and dementors. Think your favourite baddies: Bellatrix Lestrange, the Malfoys, and of course He Who Must Not Be Named -- but we will -- Lord Voldemort.

You'll get background to characters, and explanations for central wizarding concepts.

The many Defence Against the Dark Arts teachers, like Professor Quirrell, Delores Umbridge, Gilderoy Lockhart, and Severus Snape are covered, as are some of your favourites from Dumbledore's Army.

Packed with photos, facts, and trivia that you might or might not know (the classroom desks had to be rebuilt over the years to fit the actors as they grew up), The Dark Arts also includes items like:

  • Fold out posters (Have you seen this wizard?)
  • A set of cards featuring members of The Order of the Phoenix cards, 
  • A sheet of stickers (including the Deathly Hallows, a Dark Mark, and Your Ministry Needs You)
  • A Welcome to the Magical Congress of the United States of America guide to staying safe and avoiding accidents (Please do not run, fly, or apparate in the corridors).

J K Rowling's Wizarding World: The Dark Arts: A Movie Scrapbook is a great gift for Harry Potter fans.
