DEAR CHRISCOLEMAN: THIS IS THE ORIGINAL `SCHOOL BOOK`, NOT THE MOVIE (or anything to do with it.) Considering the half-`asterick` description you`ve given of the film (Dumbledore is NOWHERE to be seen, except as being mentioned having stood up for wrongfully accused Newt Scamander at Hogwarts, Pickett is a bowtruckle (although not anywhere near my idea of the proper look for a bowtruckle) and the two sisters are the by-the-book, rush-in-to-the-defense-of-the-helpless-where-MACUSA-fears-to-tread nerd and her delightful, Marilyn Monroe-sweet, Non-Maj (Muggle) adoring baby sister, I have only one question for you: WHAT FILM WERE YOU LOOKING AT, BWANA???????

This is a clever and funny book that gives the reader a little satisfaction for their Harry Potter fix once they have finished all the other books. It would be fun to read all the books again with this little volume as a reference book for all of the creatures we encounter in the books. I love Harry's handwritten notes!
