They are completely different works. The screenplay follows the fictional
author Newt Scamander as he arrives in NYC with a suitcase full of
fantastic beasts. The story introduces several characters and an entire
plotline in NYC.
The BOOK titled Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a "textbook"
that Harry Potter and his friends study at Hogwarts. It is basically a
listing of a lot of different beasts. No plot, no story. The textbook was
written by a fellow named Newt Scamander (see the connection?).
Hope this helps!
