the-unofficial-harry-potter-vocabulary-builder-book-reviewThe Harry Potter Universe has created so many things that it has become necessary that certain book about such universe appear in our bookshelves. In this case, one for young readers who can find reading the Harry Potter saga a bit challenging in the vocabulary. Both if they are novice readers or if English is their second language.

The good thing about this particular book is it does not delve into the imagination of JK Rowling, but on her ability with words and tries to explain the most difficult words on the books rather than defining made up terms and Rowling-isms such as muggles, dementors and many more.

Just as an example, this is one of the first definitions on the book: abashed (uh-bashd)
adjective Somewhat embarrassed and selfconscius, / Chamber of secrets, page 52
An abashed Blackpool had grabbed a stalk of celery, thinking it was his wand.

Once again this book was sent to me by the kind folks at Ulysses Press, and even though they sent it to me, there was no need for me to do a review and the opinions are my own.
