The real problem rests with the new release of the "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" book. Many people reading this review (and indeed, there are even pictures posted from previous releases showing it) may remember that the original release was presented as a copy of the textbook as owned by Harry Potter. As such, it contained a lot of doodles and "handwritten" notes from Harry and his friends throughout the book, integrating a lot of humor and personality into the textbook content about the various creatures. Unfortunately though, those notes are, in the new version, removed. There are one or two "notes" from the "editor" in the new foreword to the book, but that's it. I know that it probably costs more to have so much varying formatting and everything, but it's not like they couldn't recoup the costs. As it stands though, this new clean version essentially feels like a partial text. The core content is there, but the personality, humor, and fun that made the original so much better is all gone. It's still good, if you want to know about the magical creatures in the Harry Potter universe, but it really used to be so much better.
The box is very good quality and very beautiful, you learn a lot about J.K.Rowling's world and annotations (that the characters have written) present in the books add a nice touch to these books. One would feel really borrowing the books in Hogwarts Library !
In short, this is a must have for Potterheads, so it can make a very nice gift and it will be perfect for a collection.

Quidditch Through the Ages was the best among the three; although, there are a few issues with dates quoted and order of events lining up accurately.
The Tales of Beatle the Bard is ridiculous. How can Hermione translate, yet Dumbledore have notes; especially on the Tale of the Three Brothers. Had Dumbledore's notes been available, the Deathly Hallows would have never had the group tromping through the land for months on end. Plus, if there were notes among Dumbledore's possessions, the Ministry would have recognized the reason Hermione got the book when they examined it; but there weren't any notes and Dumbledore was dead.
