Packed to the brim with trivia and behind the scenes bits from each of the eight Harry Potter movies. The book also includes recreated piece of memorabilia, like the marauder's map, a brochure from the Weasley's joke shop, and a letter from Hogwarts. I loved learning more about how each of the different directors approached the story. ( )

[Friday, ‎June ‎29, ‎2012] Yesterday I went book shopping and I found this book, I have seen it before but I couldn't afford to buy it, now that I could, I just had to buy it... What a wonderful book for every "Harry Potter" fan, after flipping through it and reading and remembering the movies and books and details I felt like re-watching the series again... I LOVED finding the letter, the party invitation and the amazing map in detail... I expected to find a wand as a bookmark at the end LOL, but nope, I didn't. Amazing edition to my collection. ( )

A scrapbook-like book about the making of the Harry Potter films. This is very attractive graphically and includes a lot of loose extras, like booklets, stickers, a mini-version of the Marauder's Map, and Harry's acceptance letter to Hogwarts, etc. It has (very) short anecdotes from the actors, directors, and other production staff, as well as some details about the process of producing the different movies. It is very cursory, though, so if you are a die-hard HP-fan, I would suggest getting Harry Potter Page to Screen instead, since that one is much more detailed than this one. This is still a very pretty book since the emphasis seems to be on the graphic design and the extras, so it'll stay in my bookshelf even if I won't be reading it cover-to-cover again. ( )

Review from library copy.

Fun to look through, but probably not a great pick for cirulating collection. ( )
