The audiobook for Hogwarts text Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is the most preordered title ever for Audible, according to the company.

Narrated by Eddie Redmayne, who played Newt Scamander in the film adaptation of the book, the audiobook goes on sale Tuesday through the Amazon subsidiary.

In the wizarding world created by J.K. Rowling, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is required reading for Hogwarts students to learn about magical creatures—many of which cropped up throughout the Harry Potter series. Redmayne narrates the catalogue of creatures, from Golden Snidgets to Acromantula in the audiobook.

Previously, Lee Child’s Night School held the record for most preordered audiobook, MarketWatch reported.
