Magical Me is the autobiography of Gilderoy Lockhart, part of his collected works. The book includes much of his (later proven false) achievements against dark creatures and Dark Forces.

HistoryEdit

In 1992, when Harry Potter went to Flourish and Blotts with the Weasleys, Gilderoy Lockhart was there signing copies of the book. When he spotted Harry Potter in the crowd, he gave Harry his whole collection of books, including Magical Me, free of charge. Harry, in turn, gave them to Ginny Weasley, due to his resentment at such a publicity stunt, and because Ginny could probably not afford them. At the time of Harry's visit to Flourish and Blotts, Magical Me was in its 27th week atop the Daily Prophet best-seller list.[1]

Later that year, when Lockhart was a Professor of Defence Against the Dark Arts at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, he gave his second year class a quiz that was largely regarding its contents. He later offered a signed copy of this book to the student who composed the best poem about his defeat of the Wagga Wagga Werewolf (as a homework assignment).
