Hogwarts: A Cinematic Yearbook: Imagine, Draw, Create
Scholastic Children’s Books
Category: Novelty/Activity Books
My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
Oh my! As an avid Harry Potter fan I couldn’t resist treating myself to this activity book (yes, I bought it for me, not my kids!). It’s a luscious hardback; very reminiscent of the annuals I used to get for Christmas when I was young.
It’s packed with activities for the reader to enjoy, my favourite being the ‘Breaking News’ pages where you get to be a writer for The Daily Prophet and pen a story worthy of the front-page.
You can design a potion, draw your own marauder’s map, and write your own magical family tree (complete with muggles). There are also a variety of postcards you can cut out and use, as well as a great selection of full-page posters from the films.
I haven’t plucked up the courage to write in my copy yet (eek!) but I’m sure when I do finally ‘conjure’ up my quill and ink I’ll have fun getting creative.
This is a beautiful book for any Potter fan and would make a charming gift.
Imagine your first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry! What would it be like to ride on the Hogwarts Express from King’s Cross station, shop in Diagon Alley, be sorted into one of the four Hogwarts houses, attend a Potions class and try out for Quidditch? Packed with fun activities and pictures from the eight Harry Potter films, including an 8-page fold-out Hogwarts Diary and full-page character posters. Anything can happen at Hogwarts!
