This book was okay. The creatures were all from the movies and it doesn't really elaborate on how they made the creatures or anything. There were also some scary images in the book, I mean, what five year old wants to flip open a book and have an iferi (dead body) staring back at them! I would recommend this book only to a serious Harry Potter fan, and one who isn't scared by too much.

This is an okay read. It is basically more about how the creatures were made and filmed for the movies than the specifics of the creatures. Unfortunately it really finished on a lame note - did they run out of the cooler creatures to talk about?
