From the Story
"The Monster Book of Monsters is a handsome green book which Hagrid sends to Harry for his birthday. As soon as he unwraps it, the book scuttles across the floor. When Harry tries to pick it up it snaps viciously at his hand. Harry uses a belt to bind it shut. In the note which Hagrid encloses with the book, he hints that the book will come in useful at Hogwarts in the coming year."
"The Monster Book of Monsters, is the set textbook for third-year Hogwarts students taking Care of Magical Creatures. The books are vicious and prone to ripping each other apart. The manager of Flourish and Blotts keeps them in an iron cage and requires very thick gloves and a few well-placed jabs with a large, knobbly walking stick to subdue them. He vows never to stock them again and compares the situation unfavourably to the incident when they couldn't locate two hundred copies of The Invisible Book of Invisibility."
