Una minuscola nazione ricca e prospera, famosa per i suoi formaggi, gli ottimi vini, i dolci deliziosi e le salsicce succulente.

Ma le leggende sono strane e a volte prendono una vita propria…Quando questo accade, toccherà a due giovani amici, Robi e Margherita, affrontare un’incredibile avventura e svelare una volta per tutte dove si nasconde il vero mostro. Solo così speranza e felicità potranno tornare a Cornucopia.

Una storia che piccoli e grandi lettori vorranno leggere e rileggere in un’edizione regalo, arricchita dalle illustrazioni a colori dei giovani vincitori del Torneo per le illustrazioni dell’Ickabog.
The Wizarding World journey continues . . . The powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald was captured in New York with the help of Newt Scamander. But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escapes custody and sets about gathering followers, most of whom are unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings. In an effort to thwart Grindelwald”s plans, Albus Dumbledore enlists Newt, his former Hogwarts student, who agrees to help once again, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead.
