Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them opens in 1926 as Newt Scamander has just completed a global excursion to find and document an extraordinary array of magical creatures. Arriving in New York for a brief stopover, he might have come and gone without incident were it not for a No-Maj (American for Muggle) named Jacob, misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt’s fantastic beasts, which could spell trouble for both the wizarding and No-Maj worlds.
“What a marvelous foray into the world of J.K. Rowling. Its period setting helps set it as an astute parallel political commentary while the progressive undertones make for a more enjoyable experience.”
