When Magizoologist Newt Scamander arrives in New York, he intends his stay to be just a brief stopover. However, when his magical case is misplaced and some of Newt's fantastic beasts escape, it spells trouble for everyone . . .

Inspired by the original Hogwart's textbook by Newt Scamander, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay marks the screenwriting debut of J.K. Rowling, author of the beloved and internationally bestselling Harry Potter books. A feat of imagination and featuring a cast of remarkable characters and magical creatures, this is epic adventure-packed storytelling at its very best.

Whether an existing fan or new to the wizarding world, this is a perfect addition for any film lover or reader's bookshelf.

The film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will have its theatrical release on 18th November 2016.

The dust jacket on this book is absolutely beautiful and of the highest quality. The book is an easy read, having never read a screenplay i was not sure what to expect at first. But was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to follow. I think the book would be an easier read for those who have seen the film before reading the screenplay though.

A Must have for any die-hard fan of the Wizarding World.

                  It is one of the most prettiest books I have ever seen. The writing is as what you would have expected from JK Rowling. Great read, before or after seeing the movies, doesn't matter, you will enjoy it regardless.

                  J. K. Rowling

                  J K (Joanne Kathleen) Rowling was born in July 1965 at Yate General Hospital in England and grew up in Chepstow, Gwent where she went to Wyedean Comprehensive.

                  Jo left Chepstow for Exeter University, where she earned a French and Classics degree, her course including one year in Paris. As a postgraduate she moved to London and worked as a researcher at Amnesty International among other jobs. She started writing the Harry Potter series during a delayed Manchester to London King's Cross train journey, and during the next five years, outlined the plots for each book and began writing the first novel.

                  Jo then moved to northern Portugal, where she taught English as a foreign language. She married in October 1992 and gave birth to a daughter Jessica in 1993. When the marriage ended, she and Jessica returned to the UK to live in Edinburgh, where Harry Potter & the Philosopher's Stone was eventually completed.

                  Jo married Dr. Neil Murray in 2001, and a brother for Jessica, David, was born in 2003. A sister, Mackenzie, followed in 2005.
