Dive into this book's crazy cauldron of cracking Potter jokes, magical gags and Fudge-tastic fun, complete with funny drawings. From dodgy Dementors to wonky wands, it'll make you laugh till you disapparate.

Don't take my word from it, read what they have to say:
'Siriusly funny stuff!' ~ S. Black
'I couldn't stop howling!' ~ Fluffy
'Ha ha, very funny.' ~ You Know Who

The book features Harry Potter jokes scattered on every other page and the following:
~ Announcements on Platform Nine and Three Quarters
~ Simply Divine (hear what Professor Trelawny has to say from a selection of drained tea cups)
~ Hooray for Hogwarts (funny poems dedicated to Hogwarts students and teachers)
~ Invisibility Cloak Care Label and advertisement
~ What's in a name?
~ Top of the Potter Pops (my favorite section of the book)
~ Songs for the Knight Bus (let's all sing along!)
~ Ask Hasgrid (he gets his own column called 'Magical Care Enthusiast')
~ Bogus Bookshelf (those are funny book titles)
~ The 'Sunday Sorceror' Lonely Hearts Page (contributors were Hagrid, a Dementor, Prof. Lupin, Umbridge, Prof. Snape, Voldemort, Moaning Myrtle and Prof. Lockhart)
~ Ten Ways to Annoy the Dark Lord (Draw a lightning-bolt scar on his forehead while he's asleep)
~ Ten Ways to Annoy Hermione (Shuffle her numerically organized Arithmancy crib cards)
~ Miss Umbridge's pimboard
~ An ad from the makers of the Mirror of Erised
~ The Heir Questionnaire
~ An ad from the future of Owl Mail Service
~ Bluff your way in Magical Latin
~ Knock Knock jokes
~ The Potter Impostor Spotter
~ The Ghostly Gazette
~ Quidditch Coaching Signals
~ Dementor Application Form
~ Wise Words on Wandery (advice from Hermione)
~ An ad from the Swiss Army Wand
~ Boredom Busters (suggestions from Sirius on how to beat boredom while locked up in Azkaban) ~ FarSickle Articles (although the Death Eater's Colookbook was interesting...)

Love these jokes:
"What's large and hairy with a single fang? (Hagrid)"
"How do mountain trolls like to spend their evenings? (Clubbing)"
"Why wasn't Voldemort at the Yule Ball?" (He had no body to go with)
"What's on the floor of Voldemort's barber's?" (The Hair of Slyherin)
"What spell should you use against rampaging vegetables?" (Stewpify!)
"What has a list and a trolley and can see into the future?" (A shopping centaur)

So stop pottering around and get the Hogwarts out of here and grab this book for more Pottermania fun.
