These stories profile two of the Harry Potter stories’ most courageous and iconic characters: Minerva McGonagall and Remus Lupin. It also offers never-before-published writing by J.K. Rowling about Professor McGonagall’s role in the second wizarding war.

· Hogwarts: An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide. Entries are focused on Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, a place of almost boundless mystery and magic. Readers will venture to the Hogwarts grounds, become better acquainted with its more permanent residents, discover its secrets, its hidden rooms and corridors… all at the turn of a page.

· Short Stories from Hogwarts: Power, Politics and Pesky Poltergeists. Featuring stories from pottermore.com with themes of temptation, power, mischief and villainy. They provide a glimpse into the darker side of the wizarding world with writing about characters like Dolores Umbridge, and Quirinus Quirrell, and first-time published work about Harry Potter’s portly Potions Master Horace Slughorn.
