Between Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, it’s a big year of fans of J.K. Rowling’s wizarding world. But although Cursed Child was developed with Rowling’s approval and guidance, it was mostly written by playwrights Jack Thorne and John Tiffany. The script for Fantastic Beasts, by contrast, was written entirely by Rowling, and as such, might have a greater claim to being a new Harry Potter book than even Cursed Child.

As previously announced, fans will be able to read the script in book form on Nov. 19 (the day after Fantastic Beasts‘ theatrical release), either as a Pottermore ebook or a print edition from Scholastic. But as the author, Rowling got an advanced copy, and shared a glimpse of it with fans Thursday on Twitter.

“Advance copies never, ever lose their thrill,” Rowling tweeted.
