Bloomsbury, the UK publishers of the Harry Potter novels by J.K. Rowling, has announced they are re-releasing two of the companion books this summer: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and Quidditch Through the Ages. Due to be released July 31, 2009, you can see here in our galleries the new artwork for Fantastic Beasts, and the new Quidditch cover art here.

The Bookseller cites a spokesperson for Bloomsbury as saying :“There are always new Harry Potter readers coming to the series each year who will be looking for other exciting things to read.” According to the article the two books "will again raise funds for the charity with £1.15 from each £4.99 title sold going to Comic Relief." "Previous editions of the book were published in a slim format similar to the £1 World Book Day books but the latest editions will be chunkier versions comprising 128 rather than 96 pages, including the original illustrations. So far, according to Nielsen BookScan, Fantastic Beasts has sold 509,473 copies while Quidditch has sold 491,853."

Now their cover art matches the Tales of Beedle the Bard’s! Hopefully that means that Jo is planning on making more of these little Hogwarts Library Books in the future.

They are pretty cool! I like them both! I don’t like that the Fantastic Bests and where to find them has the hogwarts emblem on it, cause it isn’t a specific book just for Hogwarts! But, all in all they are sweet!

These look great but too bad my parents would never let me buy a book I’ve already got just because the covers changed. I love cool covers!!! This is a cool cover!

Just got the originals like 2 weeks ago… ironic :/
maybe I’ll get the new ones, but why have Newt Scamander & J.K. Rowling’s name on the cover? jw

Guess That Book

Ron's wand was still malfunctioning, surpassing itself on Friday morning by shooting out of Ron's hand in Charms and hitting tiny old Professor Flitwick squarely between the eyes, creating a large, throbbing green boil where it had struck.
