Gr 6 Up—What happens when serious crafters combine with devoted Harry Potter fans? Cue this well-organized batch of ideas for the creation of Potter-related items. The book begins with wearables such as tie-dyed T-shirts (in the school colors of Hogwarts, of course), and accessories, and each chapter takes on a different aspect of the series, including characters and related objects. Directions for making a "sorcerer's stone paperweight," "dementor soap," a "lumos/nox light switch," and "nargles for the yard" encourage the use of themed crafts throughout the house, as gifts, or as unique school supplies. While clever and clearly explained, the ideas presented here are not for novices or young children but rather for more mature and experienced crafters. Additionally, specialized material (e.g., sheets of Shrinky Dinks, a glue gun, charcoal capsules) may not be readily available and could become costly. VERDICT Recommended for the sophisticated crafter who doubles as a Harry Potter fan.—Maria B. Salvadore, formerly at District of Columbia Public Library
"The projects are generally easy to make and use supplies that are readily available. That first generation of Potter fanatics is hitting their 30s, and their thirst for 1990s nostalgia is unquenchable." --Library Journal
"Creative projects plus easy-to-follow directions with excellent photographs make this a creative, must-own book for Harry Potter fans like us." --Imagination Soup
"With no help from J.K. Rowling, author Jamie Harrington takes some of the elements of the books and creates crafts." --Austin American-Statesman
"You might want to double dip at the bookstore, because this month has also brought America The Unofficial Guide To Crafting The World Of Harry Potter. Harrington serves up dozens of Potterific ideas, from shirts you can tie-dye into house colors (yes, even Slytherin) to pencil wands." --SheKnows
"Whether your kid is obsessed with Harry Potter, hasn't read the books yet, or has only just gotten into them, this book is sure to be one of their new favorites." --POPSUGAR Moms
"A Harry Potter crafts book that renews your faith in magic and hot glue guns. Get them doing more than zoning out to the first eight movies, with the brand new The Unofficial Guide to Crafting the World of Harry Potter. Jamie Harrington has put together 30 clever crafts for kids of all ages into a beautifully produced book, that help reinforce a belief in the power of magic, good vs. evil, and Modge Podge." --Cool Mom Picks
"These crafts are doable--no power tools necessary and most of the crafts are made from everyday, inexpensive items." --Florida Today/USA Today Network

If you're not an experienced crafter and have kids crazy for Harry Potter, then this book is perfect. It's also good for kids who are into crafting. If you're an experienced crafter, this is not the book for you.
On a positive note, it might be cute for an inexperienced crafty little wizard that loves all things Harry Potter.
