What a delightful little book! I listened to the audiobook version of this one with Eddie Redmayne and I quite enjoyed it. Having watched the Fantastic Beasts films, I thought it was a perfect fit for him and added that extra touch. There were also side effects that went with each creature which were quite entertaining, although at times a touch overdramatic.
I think what entertained me most of all about this book was the sheer creativity of it all. For someone to develop all of these creatures, their habitats, their mannerisms, etc. is quite impressive. You also aren’t quite sure what to expect from each creature because Rowling’s interpretation is unique to her.
I’d love to get my hands on an illustrated copy of this book. While I have a pretty vivid imagination, I’d love to see images of these creatures.
