Harry Potter

If any of you know me, you know I absolutely adore the Harry Potter series. The novels are some of my all-time favorites. The audio versions are fabulously done. Jim Dale does an amazing job with all the voices. Did you know he holds a World Record for the most created character voices in a single audiobook (146 in the Deathly Hallows)? The films are pretty well done adaptations of the novels and have grown in depth and emotion as the films progress. Anyway, we have a new book celebrating the movies--just in time to check it out before watching the final film this July.

This nonfiction book contains behind the scenes look through the first six movies. This insider look has the actors' looking back at the films as well. Did you know that in Prisoner of Azkaban a replica of Draco Malfoy was made to be 30% smaller so when Hagrid carried him to the hospital it would appear that Hagrid was larger than he really was? Movie magic, gotta love it. Filled with tidbits, pictures, and extras like Harry's Hogwarts letter, the Quidditch World Cup programme, and the Marauder's Map, this book will capture the imagination of fans of the books, movies, and film making in general.

Check it out today! And don't forget to come to the Harry Potter Hurrah on the 19th of July.
