Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (9 ):

Unlike its companion volume, Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them, this fascinating history is meant to be read through rather than used as a reference, and Potter fans will enjoy it.

Quidditch Through the Ages is filled with diagrams, news clippings, excerpts from journals, and a wide variety of made-up names and absurd but plausible-sounding historical tidbits from Rowling's fertile mind. Young readers are delighted to know more about their favorite magical sport, and Rowling's clever, humorous way of telling it may make them wish that all history books were written this way.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
