Review: J.K. Rowling's Wizarding World - A Pop-Up Gallery of Curiosities

J.K. Rowling's Wizarding World is full of magical curiosities: a flying car, a hat that sings, an enchanted case, and so much more. This small, deluxe pop-up book showcases three-dimensional renderings of some of the beloved curiosities from the Harry Potter films, including two pops related to the upcoming Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Pull out flaps will feature text that delves into the items on each spread and how they were achieved in the films.

This book will have doors that open from the middle of the front cover, a sturdy magnetic closure, and elastic loops to hold each pop firmly in place making it a perfect stand-alone display.

Review:
I'm a sucker for anything Harry Potter related, I have a huge collection of books and random other merchandise and I'd been eyeing up this pop up book for ages before I took the plunge and bought a copy. To be honest I was a bit put off by the price tag when I haven't been able to find a copy in a store to actually look at but when Amazon had it on sale at less than half price I snapped it up, I have no willpower to resist a HP bargain LOL.

Pop Up books generally don't have many pages so I wasn't surprised that this only contains five scenes from the HP world. It really won't take you long to actually read this book because there is very little in the way of writing but the pop ups are well designed and some of them are quite intricate. The book opens from the centre, like folding back two doors, and there is elastic to hold it open to the pop up you want to display. The smaller size of this book makes it perfect as a shelf decoration and you can easily switch between the different pages.

I'll include photos of each scene but you'll find the Harry at the sorting ceremony, Newt peering out of his suitcase, the whomping willow when Ron and Harry drove into it, Newt in the vault trying to catch the niffler and the classroom scene with the Cornish Pixies. Avid Harry Potter fans will love this book but I'm glad I waited until the price was cheaper.
