For generations, the Sorting Hat has placed first-year witches and wizards into one of the four Hogwarts houses: Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw, and Hufflepuff. Get an up-close look at how the Sorting Hat was imagined, designed, and brought to life for the Harry Potter films. Readers will learn how the filmmakers crafted the Hat’s unique appearance, how Harry, Ron, and Hermione were Sorted into Gryffindor their first year, and how Fawkes brought the Hat to Harry’s aid during Harry’s battle with the Basilisk in the Chamber of Secrets. Finally, build your own Sorting Hat with the included do-it-yourself wood model, and paint it any way you like!
