History

Gilderoy Lockhart's book

A copy of Lockhart's book

This book revealed how Lockhart supposedly gave a Yeti a headcold,[2] though Lockhart later revealed that he was merely taking credit for the achievements of other wizards.[3] It was also in this book Lockhart indicates that his favourite colour is lilac.[4]

Spella Weekly praised the book, writing, "Heart to Hart with the lovely Lockhart. Bewitching."[5] What Wand also gave it a favourable review, raving, "Lockhart sure can spell. Lock around the clock!"[5] Both quotes were featured on the back of the book's dust jacket.[5]

When investigating a Muggle sighting of a magical creature at the Siren's Rest pub in Wales, Mathilda Grimblehawk and her partner came across a journal with a drawing of a yeti on the front cover. Mathilda's scoffed "I hope this reads better than Lockhart's 'Year with the Yeti'…"[6]
