Kennilworthy Whisp was an English wizard, author and Quidditch expert/fanatic, known for having written a number of Quidditch-related works, including the best-selling book Quidditch Through the Ages. Whisp resided in Nottinghamshire in England, and divided his time between his home and "wherever the Wigtown Wanderers were playing". His hobbies included playing backgammon, vegetarian cookery, and collecting vintage broomsticks.[2] Despite liking vegetarian cookery, he was not a vegetarian.[3]

Published works


The author's surname may be derived from the Old English word "Wisp", meaning a small bundle of straw (such as might be found at the end of a broom). "Kenilworth" is also the name of a town in Warwickshire, England.
