The Boggart

A much-feared supernatural being from the north of England, the boggart survives against the odds whether in place-names or the pages of Harry Potter. Using long-forgotten sources and one of the largest folklore surveys ever carried out in Britain, this book reveals that almost everything we thought we knew about the Boggart is wrong.
