Devoured by Harry Potter in his first year, Quidditch Through the Ages is consulted on a daily basis by the young witches and wizards at Hogwarts. Kennilworthy Whisp's sporting bible is packed with trivia, tales of on-pitch antics, and Quidditch stars past and present. It also contains comprehensive profiles of Quidditch teams featured in the Harry Potter novels - from Ron's beloved Chudley Cannons to Puddlemere United and Vratsa Vultures.
Emily Gravett, twice winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal, joins the celebrated team of hand-picked talent who have brought their illustration magic to the world of Harry Potter. Her wildly creative imagination has conjured a visual feast to surprise and delight. Lovingly created in a dazzling range of media - drawn, sewn, thrown - and infused with her trademark visual wit, these charming and funny handmade artworks are the perfect pairing for J.K. Rowling's humorous insights into the magical, airborne sport.
Quidditch Through the Ages is published in aid of Lumos, an international children's charity founded in 2005 by J.K. Rowling, and Comic Relief.
