Isn´t it possible that Punnet wrote the book, and that Garino wrote wrote an updated version? There are also different variastion of the Tale of the three brothers and Charm your own cheese.--Rodolphus 11:20, April 18, 2010 (UTC)

To say that is a bit speculative, isn't it? After all, the different versions of "Tales of Beedle the Bard" and "Charm Your Own Cheese" are outright stated to be a translated edition and a revised edition, respectively. There's nothing to suggest the same happened with "Hogwarts: A History". --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 00:36, May 20, 2010 (UTC)
During the line to the Forbidden Journey ride, Hermione is seen saying, "Not that the subject [History of Magic] isn't fascinating. Personally, I'd recommend Bathilda Bagshot's Hogwarts, a History." --Parodist 21:24, July 28, 2010 (UTC)

Hasn´t JKR herself aprooved everything in the park. So Bathilda is the most cannon.--Rodolphus 14:03, August 13, 2010 (UTC)

The image that named Garino as the author was released before the park. So, as most recent, I'd say Bagshot being author is the most canon. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 17:01, August 13, 2010 (UTC)
Just wondering, I see on here that Bathilda Bagshot was the "approved" author; however, when I go to the page it says it was Garius Tonkink. Both the books (highest canon) and the park (most recent canon) oh,and Pottermore, all say Bagshot; should I change it? Hunnie Bunn (talk) 13:14, September 16, 2012 (UTC)
