The book includes three levels of trivia, by difficulty; even the youngest fans can probably manage the easiest questions, and even hard-core followers will be challenged by the highest level. It may also spur you to re-read chapters or entire books of Rowling's works; it draws not only on all 7 books of the series, but on related works like "Fantastic Beasts" and "Quidditch Through The Ages". The answers are of course included, along with references to the source material.
The writing style pays homage to Rowling's tone and world feel, while being highly readable and entertaining.
This book would make a wonderful gift for fans of all ages. I wish I'd found time to read this before Christmas, but there are always birthdays. There's enough material, both in the differently themed chapters and the different difficulty levels, to keep anybody occupied for weeks.
This is a wonderful book to have, as it will demand the reader go pick up copies of the stories and read them again with a closer eye. I can see how it would be great fun for groups of friends or at birthday parties. Anyone who ever wanted to play Harry Potter Jeopardy only needs a copy this book to help set up the board.

Ms. Maltese has gathered an incredible range of facts and tidbits from seemingly nowhere. The book itself is divided into individual quests, or areas of knowledge, then further broken down into three levels of difficulty: salamander, phoenix, and dragon. I knew I was in trouble when I started missing phoenix questions!
Fortunately, the answers are supplied at the end of the chapter, along with some fun trivia bits. I actually went and double-checked some of those answers for accuracy, and the book was right every time.
This book would be a great at a party, or for a fund-raiser trivia quiz. I think this would also be a great idea translated into other languages, since many of the character names are completely different in each country.
My hat is off to Ms. Maltese and her impeccable research skills. I challenge all Potter fans to try their hand and test their Potter knowledge!
