Hogwarts Students of the 1992–1993 school year

Gadding with Ghouls is a book written by Gilderoy Lockhart, part of his collected works. The book was a required textbook during the 1992–1993 school year, one of seven along with Break with a Banshee, Holidays with Hags, Travels with Trolls, Voyages with Vampires, Wanderings with Werewolves and Year with the Yeti.[1]

While getting Lockhart to give her permission to get a book in the Restricted Section, Hermione Granger revealed that there is a mention of slow-acting venom in this book. Lockhart stated that this book was "possibly my very favourite" and Hermione replied that he was very clever in the way he trapped the last one with a tea-strainer. Later that year, Harry expressed his desire to throw his copy of this book at Lockhart's face for his insistence that Rubeus Hagrid was guilty of opening the Chamber of Secrets.

Behind the scenes

  • This book is a bit of an odd one out. While the rest of Lockhart's works deal with dangerous creatures, ghouls are only be classified as XX creatures, and normally don't do anything worse than growl at intruders.[2] However, these may have been Chameleon Ghouls, which are known to be more aggressive. Alternatively, this may be another indication on Lockhart's oversight and exaggeration on all the information he provided.
