This news is so ridiculously exciting, you might just find it on the front page of the Daily Prophet. Potterheads rejoice! A new pop-up Harry Potter holiday book is available soon, and muggles everywhere will absolutely love the magic within the pages of this gorgeous keepsake book.
Inside the pages of Harry Potter: A Hogwarts Christmas Pop-Up, fans will find one-of-a-kind recreations of scenes from within the halls of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry during Christmastime. If you've always wanted to take a trip to Hogwarts, there is no better time to visit than when the halls are decked for the holidays. Open the hardcover book to find your favorite characters dining in the Great Hall with a pop-up Christmas tree front and center.
Possibly even more thrilling than when Hedwig swoops down to deliver your Christmas packages, included in the book are 25 removable ornaments featuring iconic images from the film that you can use to decorate the pop-up tree as you countdown to Christmas. The tree itself pops out to stand 13 inches tall, so the ornaments featuring Horcruxes and house emblems you use to decorate it can be proudly displayed in your home during the holidays.
For $40, you can enjoy all that the interactive Christmas pop-up book has to offer, including a softcover booklet with behind-the-scenes information from the Harry Potter movie set about props, set design, and details about the magical holiday moments featured in the films.
