Here was my initial review on Goodreads:
I enjoyed this little read although it reads a bit like a dictionary, it is still fascinating and interested me in myths and legends regarding certain creatures.
Also, if you have seen the film with the same name, this book is really useful to decipher which creatures are which. I absolutely love the cover and the newly designed Hogwarts Library collection. Hardback beauties would be my description!
A must-have guide for any witch or wizard interested in magical creatures.
