Do you like Harry Potter and other J.K Rowling stories? Then “J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World: Movie Magic Volume One: Extraordinary People and Fascinating Places” (Candlewick Press) is the book for you. It has the funny moments in the making of the “Harry Potter” series and “Magical Beasts.” It also includes scenes from the movies.

In this book, you can learn about how it feels to be in the making of a movie. For example, this is a paragraph about Draco Malfoy: “Tom Felton had his eyebrows dyed blond for ‘Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets,’ but he thought they looked horrible, and was worried he’d be teased, so they went back to their natural brown.”

This book also includes amazing facts about Harry Potter. Harry’s scar has been drawn on his forehead with a stencil, then they put some makeup on it to make it look real. Daniel Radcliffe (who plays Harry Potter) had picked off the scar during film takes.

So now that you know all about this book, you can see that it is very cool. It has many different behind-the-scenes facts. Though it is not a book that would take a month or two to read like the ones in the Harry Potter series, it is a great book with tons of detail.
