A MUGGLE'S GUIDE TO THE WIZARDING WORLD: Exploring the Harry Potter Universe examines and explains the complex world created in J.K. Rowling's books, covering everything from Azkaban to Zonko's. Whether you've forgotten a potion ingredient, can't remember the effects of a particular spell, or are just having trouble keeping all the characters straight, this guide is an indispensable resource for reviewing the finer details of the Harry Potter series. It contains a comprehensive glossary of characters, creatures, locations, and objects, plus lots of fun, interesting, and useful extras, including:

*a British word translator
*comparisons between the books and films
*must-see Harry Potter Web sites
*a mini-biography of J.K. Rowling
*information about the symbolism and mythology used throughout the series
*a glossary of locations used in the films
*tips for hosting your own Harry Potter party
*quirky facts about the Harry Potter universe
*an alphabetized index

This is the only guide to the Harry Potter series that includes all five books, all three films, and hints about upcoming twists in the series. Written in an engaging, humorous, and straightforward style, A MUGGLE'S GUIDE TO THE WIZARDING WORLD is an essential read for fans awaiting the next book and the perfect companion to the Harry Potter series.

Journal Entry 5 by HallieK from Austin, Texas USA on Thursday, September 13, 2007
This was fun to read through. I've finished the series and this book only goes through the first 5, but it was still interesting to read back over some details that I'd forgotten. Thanks for sharing!

I'll be mailing this off soon. I already have the next address.

Journal Entry 6 by NMReader from Herndon, Virginia USA on Wednesday, October 3, 2007
Arrived today but I had a full mail box so it will be a little while before I start but I am looking forward to reading.

Journal Entry 7 by NMReader from Herndon, Virginia USA on Wednesday, November 7, 2007
I must apologize, it took me over a month to read but I read it cover to cover. I learned a lot I didn't know and it was great because it did not give anything away at least for me - I have read books 1-3 and seen movies 1-5.

The book helped clear up some confusion I had on some points.

Thanks for sharing.

Journal Entry 9 by yvensong from Reno, Nevada USA on Friday, November 30, 2007
This arrived a couple of days ago. (First day I've been able to get online long enough to journal.) I've already started reading it and am already learning things I have long forgotten from the earlier books.

Thanks for sharing. I'll PM the next reader so I can send to her as soon as I'm done!

Journal Entry 10 by yvensong from Reno, Nevada USA on Wednesday, December 5, 2007
Thanks so much for sharing this! Like the previous reader, this book helped clear up a few things and helped me make a bit more sense of the last book in the series. I wish I had this when I was reading that book!

I have sent this along to sistert today.

Journal Entry 11 by sistert from Catonsville, Maryland USA on Sunday, December 30, 2007
Yikes! I thought I'd already marked this one as arrived. Not only has it arrived it was enjoyed and finished in record time. I hope the author expands the book to include the last two Harry Potter stories (and movies) in time. If she does, I'm buying it!

Contacting C3 now.
