J.K. Wizarding World Books

I received 2 J.K. Rowling Wizarding Books to help facilitate my review 

Ever since the first Harry Potter book was released, I have been hooked.  I was delighted to share these wonderful stories with my boys and this past year we loved watching Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.  We recently had the opportunity to review 2 J.K. Rowling Wizarding books from Candlewick Press!

J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World: Movie Magic Volume Two: Curious Creatures

Thunderbirds and Nifflers, house-elves and Hippogriffs—J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World abounds with magical creatures of all kinds. But how does a Bowtruckle come to life on the big screen? Is an Occamy a snake or a bird? And what’s the truth about Mooncalf poop?

Featuring detailed creature profiles, stunning artwork, and captivating insights from the making of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and all eight Harry Potter films, these pages reveal everything fans want to know about how these creatures were created. Jam-packed with bonus material—pop-ups, lift-the-flaps, removable posters, and other goodies—this book offers young readers a thrilling backstage pass to the wizarding world.

Meet the magnificent creatures and fantastic beasts of J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World.

Using black line illustrations on framed acetate pages, this enchanting book allows fans to project their favorite scenes from the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them films at home with a flashlight. 

Discover Dobby the house-elf, Buckbeak the Hippogriff, and other fascinating creatures from the wizarding world in this unique book. In a dark room, shine a light through the window on each page to project incredible scenes on the wall or ceiling. Read along and experience extraordinary moments from J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World like never before.

My take:  We loved the first Volume of Movie Magic and the 2nd volume exceeded expectations as well.  You are able to get a close up view of some of the most memorable creatures as well as learn about how they were made.  
The Magical Film Projections Book is quite magical indeed.  My kids love looking at this book during bedtime with each fighting over who gets control of the flashlight next to see what the next illustration will be.  Very cool book!
