"Another instalment of adventure from Gilderoy Lockhart."
—Description[src]
Gilderoy Lockhart Travels with Trolls
Travels with Trolls is a book written by Gilderoy Lockhart, one 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 Gadding with Ghouls, Holidays with Hags, Voyages with Vampires, Wanderings with Werewolves and Year with the Yeti[2]

History

" Let's see, said Hermione, slamming Travels with Trolls onto the discarded pile with a rather fierce look"
—Hermione discards Travels with Trolls while packing for the Horcrux hunt[src]
Travels with Trolls by Gilderoy Lockhart is one of the books Lockhart assigns to students in his Defence Against the Dark Arts classes.

It presumably concerned Lockhart's supposed experiences with trolls, though Lockhart was later revealed to be a fraud and this book actually concerned other wizards who had their memory modified by Lockhart.[3]

In 1997, Hermione considered this book as she was sorting supplies for their mission to find Voldemort's Horcruxes. It was one of the books she decided not to bring, as she considered it worthless in regards to the task the trio were about to undertake.[4]

Which Wizard gave the book a positive review, describing it as a "A spellbindingly good read," and Spella Weekly declared it to be "Absolute Warlocks!"[1] Both quotes were featured on the back of the book's dust jacket.[1]
