NO BUT DO YOU WANT TO HEAR MY THEORY FOR THIS SCENE
This doesn’t comply with the books, I realize, but it doesn’t exactly not comply either.
Why would Malfoy rip a page out of a random book? If he wanted the book, he could have just bought the book himself. He’s not poor, his family doesn’t discourage learning. He chooses to rip a particular page with a pointed glance out of a book. Why?
Think of what this and Dobby’s actions of warning have in common: Lucius Malfoy. The one who was apparently talking freely of the dangers that would face the Muggle borns this year. I think Draco knew more about what was going on, or at least figured more out, than he let on to his friends. Why? He was worried.
How does this connect to the ripped paper? How did Harry and Ron find out about the basilisk? How did Hermione?
A ripped piece of paper on basilisks.
Now we’re to assume that Hermione found this in a library book and promptly ripped it out to take with her.
But why would Hermione, with her love and care for books almost on par with the librarian, rip a page out of a book she could have just checked out? My guess is she didn’t find it in the library.
My guess is Draco somehow slipped her the piece of paper that he ripped out of a book before school started, detailing the monster he knew was in the Chamber.
He slipped Hermione the paper somehow, whether by leaving it on her desk or planting it in her bag. He tried to warn them, as best he could.
