Book Review: Quidditch Through the Ages by Kennilworthy Whisp

This book is for any fan of Quidditch, the casual and the deeply invested.  Kennilworthy Whisp explores the history of the greatest sport known to Wizarding kind.  He also explains the rules of the game along with some of the most popular of the over 700 fouls out there.

Hogwarts Headmaster Albus Dumbledore has graciously allowed this copy from the school's library to be reprinted for Muggle consumption.  Yes, we, too, can finally learn about this noble sport.  

In 2001, JK Rowling put together two books, one a text book and the other a library book, from Potterverse with the 20% of the proceeds going to her favorite charity, Comic Relief.    Quidditch Through the Ages allows us to learn more about the sport of Wizards, especially our favorite, Harry Potter.   Rowling really put her mind to it to create such a wide and diverse history for this sport.  It's cool to see how much she put into it.  She created a history that goes back thousands of years through different stages of the broomstick game.  It's amazing to see how intricate everything is.  

I read this book for pure pleasure.  All opinions are my own.  I was not compensated in any way.
