Review for Harry Potter: A Journey Through a History of Magic

Harry Potter: A Journey Through A History of Magic, Harry Potter, Blue, Wands, Keys, Hats, Shapes, British Library, Non-Fiction., J.K. RowlingThe family/child version of the book: Harry Potter: A History of Magic.

So happy I finally finished this one and the other book. I got these in 2017(Christmas), but since I was going to the exhibit in February 2018 (my hubby organised it as a birthday surprise) I didn’t want to spoil it. After that it was just too soon to read as I still remembered everything. And now? Still remember plenty, but I loved visiting the exhibit again!

This book is essentially the same as the History of Magic book, however there is a big difference. It is more simplified. Whereas the other book is more for adults this one is more for children.

But there are other differences. For instance there are other illustrations and images that pop up, there are biographies for the characters, fun experiments and things to try at home (which I absolutely loved and I am sure kids will love to try them out as well), and plenty of more that will keep you interested for the entire book.

I had so much fun reading this one. While I read the books back to back, I wasn’t bored once while reading. This book just has a different tone, less serious, more playful than the other that made it a whole different read for me. It gave a different view to the exhibition and I loved it.

I would highly recommend this one to Harry Potter and magic fans everywhere. For the adults, be sure to grab both books, believe me you won’t be disappointed.

  1. Really interesting! I actually know virtually nothing about Harry Potter, and actually mean to start reading the books over Christmas 🙂

    1. Thank you. And oh my! Then you got quite a wonderful journey ahead of you, be sure to also check out the illustrated editions of the Harry Potter books which have Gorgeous (yes, that needs a capital letter) illustrations throughout. Enjoy the journey~
