This review is from: Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them (Turtleback School & Library Binding Edition) (School & Library Binding)First I would like to say how much I enjoyed this book, despite its shortness. It offers insight into animals we have already seen and some that we will(hopefully). While I wish that the descriptions were much, much longer, it offers a breif description of many animals from around the world.
Some people are complaining that certain animals are not in this book. Here is why:
Voldemorts snake: It is a Basilisk
Thestral: Look under "Winged Horse." Only one sentence though
Blask-Ended Skrewts: Because Hagrid bred these monsters illegally, he is the only one to know this and has not registered them with the MoM
The only monster that I can think of right now that is not included is the boggart, though I am sure that there are others. I think that Rowling should write some more books like this one in order to give us more info into the world of HP. I would like to see one on things like vampires, hags, and goblins, since they are not in this book because they are termed "beings" (able to speek and comprehend the human language), and one on the MoM and wizards in other countries (schools; MoM's; and habbits, such as flying carpets in the middle east).
