Talk about the name that keeps on giving to its Muggle fans. Just in time for Halloween, Insight Editions is releasing new Harry Potter books that will add to the ever-growing brand. However, these aren’t just any ordinary books (as none of them are), but unique reads that you’ll love to make room on your coffee table for.

The first one is Harry Potter: Creatures: A Paper Scene Book, which is being released on October 2. This four-diorama book portrays scenes with the creatures Harry Potter encounters in 3D pop-up form—from the dragons in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire to the Thestrals in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. And to relive moments even further, each scene comes with lesser-known facts about the films and information about the creatures. Your inner wizard will be jumping for joy!

The second book is Harry Potter: A Pop-Up Guide To Hogwarts, which has a release date of October 23. Written by Matthew Reinhart and illustrated by Kevin M. Wilson, this interactive pop-up walks readers through five iconic Hogwarts locations (indoors and outdoors)—from the Hogsmeade Village to the Quidditch Field and the Hogwarts Castle itself. Each spread includes a large pop-up in addition to smaller mini-pops that makes the entire scene come to life.

And last but not least, the third is being released on Hallow’s Eve, Harry Potter: Imagining Hogwarts: A Beginner’s Guide To Moviemaking by Bryan Michael Stroller. This book differs from the other two while still being interactive, filled with activities that allows you to create your very own movie set. Using stickers, posters, and other removable extras, this guide teaches each step that goes into the production of a movie. Camera, lights, magic!

While October might seem far away, Potter fans can pre-order all three books. For now, a countdown will have to suffice.
