Maybe I'm just not in the right age bracket though.
The book is a good reference for information on people such as Nicholas Flamel, Circe and Paracelsus and for the origin of names (e.g. Patil)while most of the creature information is also interesting. One problem is in regard to the Unicorn. The Unicorn legend actually came about over the misidentification of the Rhinocerus and was made by European and Middle Eastern traveleres coming back from Africa.
On the whole I was very satisfied with the book and would reccommend it to anyone who is interested in the background of these legendary people, animals and places/things referenced in the Harry Potter books.
