Harry Potter Film Wizadry

Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe recently revealed that there were to be no more books featuring the boy wizard. So where's a HP fan to get their fix from now?

We took a look at Harry Potter: Film Wizardry, a new large form hardback book telling the behind the scenes story of the Harry Potter film series.

What's lovely about this book are all the little extras snuggling between the 160 pages - a potion-making booklet; a pullout map of Diagon Alley; the Marauder's Map; the Quidditch World Cup programme and more.

The book also contains interviews with cast members and crew, telling the story of how the best-selling books were transformed into big screen extravaganzas. It's part Harry Potter history, part film making story, all beautifully presented. There are on-set photographs and secrets revealed including why the Dementors move the way they do and how Hogwarts Castle was brought to life.

Anyone from around eight and over who's enjoyed the Harry Potter books and films will like this, it's a lovely informative and fun gift.

Harry Potter: Film Wizardry is out now, published by Bantam Press. RRP £25, but look out for offers. Asda have it at around £15, and The Book Depository is currently showing best price at £13.99
