I'm pretty it was already discussed, but I have a question: why this page is not name to "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (fictional)", or something like that, and make the "normal' FBWFT a disambig page? Lady Junky 13:43, August 24, 2015 (UTC)
Why the companion book is so thin
It states explicitly in the book that it is intended for Muggles. The real, in-universe textbook is quite large, while the real-world book is very thin. The reason is likely because the reproduction is intended for Muggles, the volume is abridged so as not to reveal certain information to the non-magical community. I think it would be worth proposing this theory in the Behind the Scenes section.
This is probably not the case. The book is said to be an excact reprint of Harry's copy. It is only mesant to provide an overview of Magizoology, as written in the book by Newt himself. By the way, where does it say that the in-universe book is very large?--Rodolphus (talk) 20:45, November 29, 2016 (UTC)
