Finding Even More Fantastic Beasts

By Scholastic Inc., Special for  USDR

Scholastic Corporation (NASDAQ: SCHL), the global children’s publishing, education and media company, will publish an updated edition of the bestselling and collectible companion book to the Harry Potter books, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, with a new foreword by J.K. Rowling, writing as Newt Scamander, and a new cover by Headcase Design on March 14, 2017.  The book will be published simultaneously with Bloomsbury UK and the Pottermore eBook  edition.

Originally published fifteen years ago, now this book has been revisited by the author to bring the original classic up to date with new content that reflects the exciting developments in J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World. The book served as the inspiration for the Warner Bros. major motion picture of the same name which marked J.K. Rowling’s screenwriting debut.  Scholastic published the screenplay on November 18, 2016, and the book went to the top of bestseller lists  nationwide.
