One of the elements of the Harry Potter series is the use of language hidden throughout the books. As a foreign language teacher, I tend to pick up on the use of foreign languages in the books I read. The majority of the spells in Harry Potter are of Latin origin and are most of the time literal translations of what the spell does.
“The Unofficial Ultimate Harry Potter Spellbook” collects all of the spells used in the book series, the Lego games, as well as the computer/phone games. They are divided into sections for spells & charms, transfiguration, and Hexes, Jinxes, and Curses. The final section is for magical items.
What I appreciated about this is that for the longest time I had no idea what the difference was between a spell and a charm. Or between a hex, jinx, or cures. The book delineates all of these as well as describes what each spell does and where the spell is referenced in teh either the books or the games.
This is a great resource to add to your Harry Potter collection. It added some background knowledge to what I had already known about Harry Potter and adds a new layer to my understanding of the Wizarding World.
