In the Harry Potter series, as Harry explored the magical world during his first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, he found himself reading about all kinds of magical creatures that remained hidden from muggles. In Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, a book that Harry has to use for one of his classes, he comes to learn about a whole new world of wonderful creatures that inhabit the magical world. To the delight of all Harry Potter followers, the book is now available for them to read, exactly similar to the one used at Hogwarts.

Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them is presented as the copy originally owned by Harry himself and is full of side notes and scribbles from Harry and his friends, Ron and Hermione. While some of the beasts described in the book have appeared in the Harry Potter books, many of them have not appeared anywhere in the series. From deadly Lethifold to innocuous Hippogriffs, the book reveals the secrets of many strange and beautiful mythical creatures.

Though authored by J. K. Rowling, the book carries the name of Newt Scamander as the author. Scamander is a fictional character from the world of Harry Potter who specializes in the magical science of zoology. The book also contains a foreword from the school’s charismatic headmaster, Albus Dumbledore.
