Title: Quidditch Through The Ages
Author: J. K. Rowling/ Kennilworthy Whisp
Series: Harry Potter Companion
Publication Date: March, 2001
If you have ever asked yourself where the Golden Snitch came from, how the Bludgers came into existence or why the Wigtown Wanderers have pictures of meat cleavers on their robes, you need Quidditch Through the Ages. This edition is a copy of the volume in Hogwarts School Library, where it is consulted by young Quidditch fans on an almost daily basis.
I really enjoyed learning more about Quidditch, about its origins and how it all came about. I love that Rowling adopts different 'academic' styles as she writes these books too and that they read exactly how you pictured them to in the books. When reading it, I could just imagine myself curled up in Ravenclaw's common room, Luna to one side creating her Gryffindor hat ready to roar. Rowling is such a talented writer and I love how much depth there is to the Harry Potter series. She's thought out every nook and cranny of this world and I hope there'll be more snippets to come in the future!
