"Tebo hide is highly prized by wizards for protective shields and clothing."
For those Harry Potter fanatics who still long for more Potter, this sliver of excitement is sure to cause excitement that is off the richter scale; for me not so much. Ms Rowling thoughtfully delivered this little volume to benefit charity, so I can't be too harsh. It is, as the title points out, a resource book for those of the wizardy type and endorsed by Dumbledore, no less.
No story to speak of, so I can only imagine what the screenplay for the upcoming film adaptation will be like. In any case, it is charming - especially the footnotes.
3 out of 5 wizards all require creature information.
