Property of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizzardry Library If you have ever asked yourself where the Golden Snitch came from, how the Bludgers came into existence, or why the Wigtown Wanderers have picturesof meat cleavers on their robes, you need Quidditch Through the Aged. This limited edition of a copy of the volume in Hogwarts School Library, where it consulted by young Quidditch fans on an almost daily basis. Proceeds from the sale of this book will go to improving and saving the lives of children around the world -work that is even more important and astonishing than the three-and-a-half-second capture of the Golden Snitch by Roderick Plumpton in 1921. J. K. ROWLING and SCHOLASTIC INC. have arranged for twenty percent of the retail sales price less taxes of this book to go to the Harry's Books fund to help needy children in the poorest countries in the world. www.comicrelief.com/harrysbooks
