UPDATE 10/12/15: 

We’ve just learned the UK release date of Harry Potter: The Official Coloring Book – November 5, 2015, over two weeks before the book will be released in America. But perhaps even more exciting (especially for those of us who just learned we’ll be getting the book nineteen days late) is that the first spread from the coloring book has been released! Check it out:

Original Post:

Children (and children at heart) have reason to rejoice because the first official Harry Potter coloring book is coming! Harry Potter: The Official Coloring Book is set to be released this November, and judging by its listing on Amazon, it will be very magical, indeed:

Packed with stunning pieces of artwork from the Warner Bros. archive, this deluxe coloring book gives fans the chance to color in the vivid settings and beloved characters of J.K. Rowling’s wizarding world. Containing intricate line drawings used in the making of the Harry Potter films, this coloring book includes fan-favorite scenes, creatures, and characters: from Dobby and baby Norbert to Quidditch games and the unforgettable final battle between Harry and Lord Voldemort.

Unique and interactive, Harry Potter: The Official Coloring Book is a perfect collector’s item for all fans of the blockbuster saga–whether it’s for those who grew up with Harry, Ron, and Hermione or those who are discovering the magic for the very first time.

The cover of the coloring book, to be published by Scholastic, depicts Buckbeak, Hedwig, and Dobby, as well as a Quidditch set, broomstick, and Golden Snitch:

    Now to await a version available in the UK…

    • Aleera

      Ah, but it IS available in the UK! And what’s more, we’re getting it here BEFORE the USA (5th Nov)! Head over to AmazonUK and search for ‘Harry Potter Colouring Book’ – it should be the third item down the list. ;^}

      • Phil Boswell

        Thank you. That is really odd, but when I tried searching for it earlier, it just gave me a single result that was nothing related whatsoever o.O

      You can order from amazon or bookdepository, its cheaper from the 2nd option though 🙂

    After CoS (the movie) came out, the UK market was flooded with merch – sticker books, behind the scenes books, and, shock horror, COLOURING BOOKS! I know, because I had 3 small children at the time and had to buy 3 lots of everything! Yes, they were marketed for kids and I know there is now a huge adult colouring market, but tbh the above book looks no more detailed than the ones I have.
    But still, yay, it looks like fun – but it’s not the first. 🙂

  • Aleera

    I’ve pre-ordered 2! One to colour in, and one to keep in mint condition on my shelf :^}

    • NeverEnoughNails

      Well I now have to go back and pre-order a 2nd. This is a good idea!!

    • Kelly Mosby

      I’m glad I’m not the only one doing this! haha

  • fuffingmagic

    Not unless you spell the English words correctly. Harry Potter is English not American so Coloring (American) But in English it is Colouring!

    • Amelia Wood

      In NZ it’s colouring. Well I spell it that way and I don’t give a hoot if it’s wrong lol

    • lala

      My dad is american and he spells things the English way and everyone finds it very strange in the states but I find it kind of charming.

  • Nicole

    I’m so excited. I can’t wait. I’m going to be so happy when it comes out.

  • Nicole Bevitori

    I already preordered the book, can’t wait to get it! Can anyone tell me what type of pages these are? I want to order new markers to color with just for this book, but wanted to make sure these are the nice thicker white pages? Not like the cheapy off-white/beige ones that you can also buy.
