Harry Potter Magical Places and Characters Colouring book

Adult colouring books are very therapeutic; they're relaxing and allow you to meditate while concentrating enough to stay within the lines. 

But with the Harry Potter colouring books, your daydreams while colouring in can be all about Hogwarts, Diagon Alley and Professor Dumbledore – just be careful they don't turn into nightmares while colouring in those Death Eater masks!

Quidditch Through the Ages

When JK Rowling released the Fantastic Beasts textbook back in 2001, she also released Harry Potter's go-to Quidditch guide, which tells fans all about the history of wizardkind's most exciting sport (seriously, who cares about Gobstones). 

Just think, maybe one day we'll see a five film franchise based on the life of the book's fictional author, Kennilworthy Whisp….

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay
