Each book is about 10,000 words long and is being sold on Pottermore and other online book retailers.

Power, Politics And Pesky Poltergeists gives readers a glimpse into the “ruthless roots” of Professor Dolores Umbridge and the relationship between Professor Horace Slughorn and Voldemort when the Dark Lord was a young student at Hogwarts. The book also provides the history behind the Azkaban prison.

Heroism, Hardship and Dangerous Hobbies profiles Minerva McGonagall and Remus Lupin, while Hogwarts: An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide focuses on secrets behind the walls of the wizarding school.
