A new range of books have been released for Harry Potter fans who have dyslexia.

Three of JK Rowling's books - The Tales of Beedle the Bard, Quidditch Through the Ages, and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them - have been released with changes in them to make them easier for people who struggle with reading.

All of the books use large font, clear captions and have detailed descriptions to go with lots of clear pictures.

They're also designed to help people with sight difficulties and have been approved by the Royal National Institute for Blind People.
