Goodreads Synopsis:

‘The Ministry of Magic felt strongly, however, that to construct an additional wizarding station in the middle of London would stretch even the Muggles’ notorious determination not to notice magic when it was exploding in front of their faces.’ – J.K. Rowling

Pottermore Presents is a collection of J.K. Rowling’s writing: short reads originally featured on pottermore.com. These eBooks, with writing curated by Pottermore, will take you beyond the Harry Potter stories as J.K. Rowling reveals her inspiration, intricate details of characters’ lives and surprises from the wizarding world.

Hogwarts An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide takes you on a journey to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. You’ll venture into the Hogwarts grounds, become better acquainted with its more permanent residents, learn more about lessons and discover secrets of the castle . . . all at the turn of a page.

What I liked most about this series of short stories was the personal tid-bits that Rowling used to create the location, and transportation of Hogwarts.

Elaborating on life within the castle, we learned, among other things, how the portraits get their personalities, the Huffelpuff common room is revealed, and the Chamber of Secrets history is also unveiled. Of them all I thought this heritage of Salazar Slytherin was the most interesting, and it answered a lot of questions I didn’t even know I had about that locale.

All of these short stories were so fun, as it always is to visit the wizarding world of Harry Potter.
