1. J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World
The Wizarding World of J.K. Rowling is so imaginative and impressive that it is no surprise that millions of us wish we lived there! “Quidditch Through the Ages” is a quick read but any small glimpse into this Wizarding World is well worth it.
2. The Immersion
J.K. Rowling made this book so immersive with its introduction by Dumbledore, “Hogwarts Library” stamp, and about the author, Kennilworthy Whisp. “Quidditch Through the Ages” truly seems to have come straight from the Wizarding World and into our Muggle hands.
“Quidditch Through the Ages” is truly entertaining with its whimsical witty humor and absurdities that will delight children and adults alike.
While sports have never been all that exciting to me, Quidditch is most intriguing perhaps because it is a Wizarding game. It was enjoyable to get the backstory that Rowling imagined for her fictional sport.

Perhaps the best part of “Quidditch Through the Ages” is the small drawing of the adorable chubby Golden Snidget, I now want one!

Sales of “Quidditch Through the Ages” goes to the Comic Relief Fund, which provides help to at-risk children and young people in the UK and internationally.
