Quidditch Through the Ages By J.K. Rowling, Kennilworthy Whisp AudioBook Summary
“At Queerditch Marsh, however, a game had been created that would one day become the most popular in the wizarding world.”
As every fan of the Harry Potter stories knows, the shelves of the Hogwarts Library are home to all sorts of fascinating books. There are three in particular you might have heard mentioned by certain Hogwarts students and that you can add to your listening list too, including Quidditch Through the Ages.
Maybe you dream of catching the elusive Golden Snitch to the sound of deafening cheers all around you, as a certain Harry Potter once did. Or perhaps, like Hermione Granger, your thirst for knowledge is somehow just never quite satisfied. Whether you’re a seasoned fan or a complete newcomer to the sport, you’ll be in good company when you pick up this particular Hogwarts Library book.
From its origins on Queerditch Marsh in the 11th century to the sophisticated sport played today, discover how “Quidditch unites witches and wizards from all walks of life, bringing us together to share moments of exhilaration, triumph and (for those who support the Chudley Cannons) despair”, according to Professor Albus Dumbledore’s foreword.
Do you know why refereeing a Quidditch match was once a task for only the bravest witches and wizards, or how to tell a Transylvanian Tackle from a Woollongong Shimmy? In this enlightening and highly popular Hogwarts Library book, Kennilworthy Whisp reveals the daring highs and dangerous lows of the glorious game of Quidditch.
