Did you know that: there are 700 ways of committing a foul in Quidditch? The game first began to evolve on Queerditch Marsh – What Bumphing is? That Puddlemere United is oldest team in the Britain and Ireland league (founded 1163). All this information and much more could be yours once you have read this book: this is all you could ever need to know about the history, the rules – and the breaking of the rules – of the noble wizarding sport of Quidditch.
Don’t you just love J.K. Rowling? The fact that at one point she took the time to create a fictional novel from a fictional universe to appease the masses and educate us Muggles about Quidditch? Just SO cool!
This was something I probably read in about 20 minutes and it was so adorable and of course sucked me into the wizarding world and, I’m not going to lie, I pretended that I was reading it from the Hogwarts library (if only, if only!).
A great companion to the Harry Potter series and something every die-hard fan must read/own!
(Also, I love how on the first page there’s a list of people who have “borrowed” the book from the Hogwarts library and of course my otp Fred and Hermione are in there right next to each other. Sigh…)
