Drawing of Buckbeak the hippogriff by Jim Kay, for The Prisoner of Azkaban

A cosseted pet, Buckbeak has taken over his doting owner’s bed, a snack of dead ferrets under his claws. Hagrid received orders from the Ministry of Magic to tether ‘Beaky’, as he affectionately called the hippogriff, but he could not bear to leave him tied up outside, alone in the snow. Jim Kay drew the interior of Hagrid’s cabin from the real life gardener’s hut at Calke Abbey in Derbyshire. The vibrant blue highlights echo the bluebells that grow there.
