I enjoyed this! Amusing and informative, I most enjoyed reading about the America take of Quidditch, our attempts at playing and our fevor for Quodpot, a ridiculous spoof of football. That being said, I'm a Quidditch fan and will be forever. My only qualm about this book is it was too short! ( )

Another Harry Potter spin-off, this time a reproduction of an original manuscript on the Wizarding game of Quidditch, supposedly written by Kennilworthy Whisp and found by Albus Dumbledore in the Hogwarts School Library. A short but fun addition to the Harry Potter series. ( )

This book is a combination of informational and modern fantasy, in that it is a book of rules and history for a fantasy sport in J. K. Rowling's famous Harry Potter series. It was a little dry at parts, but understanding the game in the books was very helpful. This would be good for if our class was going through a Harry Potter book to look at the sport, possibly make posters for our favorite Quidditch players, or write a script and do a sports announcer skit for the game.

Quidditch through the Ages is a comprehensive guide to Quidditch and the ultimate resource for anyone interested in the magical world and its most popular sport. Written by Kennillworthy Whisp (aka J. K. Rowling), it is charmingly reproduced as if it were a facsimile of the very copy from the library of the Hogwarts School of Witchraft and Wizardry ( )

A brief history of the wizard sport of Quidditch, with a focus on Great Britain. Includes the history of each aspect of the game, current popular British league teams, and a bit on international popularity. Also includes several adorable diagrams.

The wait between the publication of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix was the longest of them all, and I vividly remember how interminable it felt. (Three years is an eternity to a 12 year old!) The publication of the two "schoolbooks" was such a respite. They're so clever and light and provide much-needed comic relief (pun fully intended) right when the main series transitions into something much darker.

I read Quidditch Through the Ages first due to it being my least favorite of the two. Because, you know, sports. But J.K. Rowling can make even sports seem interesting and magical. ( )
