Jo left Chepstow for Exeter University, where she earned a French and Classics degree, and where her course included one year in Paris. As a postgraduate she moved to London to work at Amnesty International, doing research into human rights abuses in Francophone Africa.

I just got these in today and they are amazing. I'm SO glad I didn't cancel the pre-order because I already had them separately. The originals don't compare in my opinion, unless you got one of the collector editions of Beedle the Bard. The first thing you notice when unwrapping them is how sturdy the set is. The box is well made and covered in a textured paper that simulates canvas fabric with Gold printing on it. As you pull the books out, they are made of the same solid quality and textured paper and are each a different color. The spines have the gold printing too for the titles. The text in the books seems to be intact from the original releases of these books and is impressive as always. I had purchased these for our baby girl on the way but I think they will sit on my shelf next to the Harry Potter first editions because they are THAT nice. I still might pick up a 2nd set for playtime because they really have that feel of actual schoolbooks. If you have a Harry Potter fanatic in your life, grab a set, they will adore it!!

This collection is a must-have for hardcore Potter fans and anyone who wants to prolong the magic. To begin with, they are beautifully made and of good quality. The paper of the pages feels just like that of the original Harry Potter books, and overall the books are bound well and don't seem cheap. The covers are definitely something I'd expect to see at the Hogwarts Library: they are attractive primary colors and jewel-toned, staying with the Harry Potter theme.

As for the contents of the books, they're quick reads but they give tons of extra information on the wizarding world. Don't expect too much on Harry Potter himself, but you'll learn a lot about his world. Reading these books feels like the first day Harry walked into Diagon Alley. The best book is the one about Beedle the Bard, because it contains full stories of legends referenced in the books. It also has papers added into it, written by Dumbledore, giving insight into Dumbledore's mind and personality. Magical Beasts is peppered with notes from Harry, Ron, and Hermione.

These books are gorgeous.

They are seriously so pretty that I kind of hate to touch them.

I have the first versions of all of the books, but I didn't bat an eye buying these because they look so much classier. They look like something Harry, Ron, and Hermione would actually carry to class.

I absolutely love this collection! I bought two sets, one as a Christmas present for my mom and another one for myself because I'm such a huge Harry Potter nerd. I am extremely happy with the quality of the books and I would definitely recommend this to anyone who loves Harry Potter, especially for such a reasonable price.

I love this matching and durable hardcover set of the Fantastic Beasts, Quidditch Through the Ages, and the Tales of Beedle the Bard. The covers are embossed and the box is very lovely and appropriate for a display.

If you are a Harry Potter fan, this collection is a must buy! There is so much extra lore included in these books and since JK herself wrote them, they are official lore. The packaging is stunning and quality is fabulous. Shipping was very fast; arrived 3 days early! Overall, I am glad I purchased this and I highly recommend it to everyone.
