The first of three Pottermore Presents books that were released last year, this book shares tales of heroism at Hogwarts, one of my favorite places to visit through my imagination! I don’t need a reason to read (er… reread) the Harry Potter series, and these three books add to that nicely.
I admire the teachers who teach magic at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Be it the Charms teacher Filius Flitwick, the Care of Magical Creatures teacher Rubeus Hagrid or even the Potions master Severus Snape, I feel each have their own strengths and weaknesses. My favorite two teachers are Professor Minerva McGonagall, who teaches Transfiguration and Professor Remus Lupin, who had taught Defence Against The Dark Arts in the third book. This book gives more information about these two teachers, and I quite enjoyed reading that. It also brings to the fore, a teacher who is mentioned in the book only once. I liked reading about him too.
They aren’t “short stories” per say, but character sketches or additional information. But they do have magic in them. It makes me admire some characters more, and it makes me wish that more such information is known. The Harry Potter series may have ended, but there are still many secrets and back stories that can be shared. I’m hoping this Pottermore Presents series is a beginning to doing just that.
