The third in a series by Jody Revenson, 'Harry Potter: The Character Vault' is a great addition to any Potter fan's collection. It's a beautifully illustrated book that you can easily dip in and out of.

The book is split into different sections, for examples there's: Hogwarts students, members of the Order of the Phoenix, Hogwarts staff, etc. For each character you're given what I found to be interesting info such as how the actors came to audition/play the part they did. You're also told about how they came up with costumes/wardrobe designs, which again, I thought was fascinating. Coupled with this there are beautiful illustrations and photographs scattered throughout the book. I also love that at the back of the book there are two pull out posters - one featuring members of the Dark Force and the other featuring members of the Order of the Phoenix.

Overall, it's a stunning book which every time I pick up makes me want to re-read the series and re-watch the movies!
