Sadly, Claire is not with us this week as she has a nasty cold. Covering for her place will be Rubeus Hagrid, Keeper of Keys and Grounds at Hogwarts!! lol jk we wish. This week we bring you all our favorite songs about magical creatures in the Potterverse, as well as a few of the wizards who had particular attachments to them. We have Newt Scamander’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them on hand, so we’ve read excerpts from some of our favorite animals’ entries. From Acromantulas to Unicorns, Grindelows to Pixies, Nifflers to Trolls, from Owls to Thestrals—we’ve got you covered! Like the saying goes… Hagrid the giant has a posse. A posse of dangerous but awesome critters.
