Repotting Harry Potter (by James W. Thomas)

Playing Lego Harry Potter led me to re-read the series, which then led me to want to read about the series and order this book. I was looking for something like Graeme Davis's analysis, except as applied to the whole series. But it was really disappointing. Focused on puns to the exclusion of almost anything else, so desperate to sound "fun" that the writing is just annoying (worst offense: nicknaming Dubledore "Dumby," for the love of all that's holy), lots of typos, just in general a mess. I'm sure this guy's Harry Potter class at Pepperdine is fun and all, but this book was Not My Thing.
