Both ruggedly built and finely crafted, this book is a delightful blend of exceptionally detailed art and in-depth, behind-the-scenes information that both children and adults can enjoy equally. When I first opened the book, I was enthralled with the breathtaking art. The pages are lush and realistic; flipping through them is like flying through the world of Harry Potter on your Firebolt.

As if the fantastic artwork were not enough to make me buy this book, the unbelievable amount of source information on the filming of the Harry Potter franchise puts this book in a rank of its own. I have seen other well-made pop-up books about famous films, but I have never before seen one that explains about how the film was made and how the scenes were conceived. This book goes so far as to tell you the real-life name of Hedwig and the fact that the owl had "stand-ins." Because of this level of detailed information, reading it is a very satisfying learning experience. And if you are thinking that this information targets a more mature audience, think again. This book's descriptions of behind-the-scenes facts are written in a manner that most reading levels can easily grasp.

Adding together the brilliant artwork and informative content of this book, I would highly recommend its purchase to any Harry Potter fan.

I took an early lunch break and headed to Barnes and Noble to get my copy of the Pop Up book. I was glad to have gone early, because I wasn't alone and when I left the store, there were only a few copies left.

The book has five pop ups, which are of Diagon Alley, Hogwarts, Magical Creatures, Magical Games and sports and the Dark Arts and they're accompanied by little side pop ups and interactive features. I'm amazed at how much stuff they put into the book. I feel like every time I open it, there is something I hadn't seen before.

I think all the pop ups are great, but where are Ron and Hermione? They are nowhere in this book. I would have liked to see them in at least one pop up. Even though there is no supporting cast, I still think this book is a must have for all Potter fans.

First off, the images are beautiful, detailed, and accurate to the movie series. I've enjoyed looking at the images and reading the information on each page.

That said, I did find some issue with the pop-up construction. These are large pop-ups and I assume the construction is complex, but I didn't expect to have continuous issues with pop-ups sticking half-open and having to finagle with them to get them to straighten up. Also I don't know if it's just a flawed book I have, but the dragon head is positioned so it looks like it is staring at the floor with her chin/jaw planted on her chest. It looks awkward and wrong, bothering me every time i look at that page.

I had purchased two because it was such a great deal at the time ($9 ea.) and am still intending to give the second as a gift. I know that even if the pop-ups are sticky my friend (a true HP fan) will still love it.

My daughter and I both love pop-up books and I finally got around to buying this Harry Potter pop-up. It is quite simply an astounding piece of work and a marvel of paper engineering. When I opened the book, I saw a large, thick purple envelope which opens to reveal several items. There is a large poster of Harry Potter riding Buckbeak, a Wanted poster for HP, and also a Ministry of Magic announcement regarding Death Eaters. Then there is a little red envelope that opens to reveal a Howler (nothing to match a real-life Howler, but still impressive).

Altogether there are five full page pop-ups, and yes, I wish there had been more, but considering how intricate each of these pop-ups are, I'm satisfied. The first pop-up is of Diagon Alley, and there is a smaller pop-up of darling Hedwig, the snowy owl and beloved pet of Harry. It was interesting to discover that Hedwig was played by a real-life snowy owl named Gizmo and several stand-ins. There's also a small pop-up of the Weasley's Wizard Wheezes storefront.

The second pop-up is my favorite, that of the amazing Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. It is truly an amazing example of paper engineering, and reminded me of the life-size model which I saw when I visited the Wizarding World of HP at Orlando last fall. Then there's a small pop-up of the Durmstrang ship and also the Beauxbaton's carriage which appeared in HP and the Goblet of Fire.

The third pop-up features some of the magical creatures that make their appearances during the various Harry Potter films. There is Aragog the giant spider, Buckbeak, thestrals, centaurs, and Hagrid's brother Grawp. Also featured is Hagrid's hut with Hagrid and his pet dog posing outside.

This book is so special because there are so many surprise inserts, the art work is fantastic and the pop ups blow your mind. You don't have to be a Harry Potter fan to appreciate/enjoy this book, infact you may become a convert. I got this for my 6 year old grandson who is a consumate Harry Potter fan. I actually didn't want to give this book up as I am so impressed with it. I'm going to order another copy just to keep as a collector's edition.
Besides the magnificent pop ups on each page, each page has a extra envelope in the corner or a smaller surprise pop up to open . My favorite is the coiled snake with it's scary open mouth and the other is the owl in it's cage. The first page has a big purple envelope to open and there are 3 mini posters enclosed. Each page is an adventure. How something this intricate can be massed produced is beyond me. Children of all ages including myself will treasure this book and go back to it over and over again. Worth twice the price it's selling for. Don't hesitate to purchase this wonderous and most special pop up.
