What ‘s Harry Potter: Quidditch Through the Ages Audiobook?
“Oh, the thrill of the chase as I soar through the air
With the Snitch up ahead and the wind in my hair
As I draw ever closer, the crowd gives a shout
But then comes a Bludger and I am knocked out.”
—Ingolfr the Iambic, 1400s Norway
Quidditch Through the Ages Audiobook is a 2001 audiobook written by British author J. K. Rowling using the pseudonym of Kennilworthy Whisp about Quidditch in the Harry Potter Audiobook universe.
It purports to be the Hogwarts library’s copy of the non-fiction book of the same name mentioned in several novels of the Harry Potter Audiobook series.
In 2001, Rowling penned two companion books to the Harry Potter series, Quidditch Through the Ages Audiobook and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Audiobook, for British charity and offshoot of Live Aid, Comic Relief with all of her royalties going to the charity.
Over 80% of the cover price of each book sold goes directly to poor children in various places around the world. According to Comic Relief, sales from this book and its companion Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them have raised £17 million.
