From the Back Cover:
The Tales of Beedle the Bard, A wizarding classic, first came to Muggle readers' attention in the book known as Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Now, thanks to Hermione Granger's new translation from the ancient runes, we present this stunning edition with an introduction, notes and illustrations by J.K.Rowling, and the extensive commentary by Albus Dumbledore.

Never before have Muggles been privy to these richly imaginative tales: "The Wizard and the Hopping Pot," "The Fountain of Fair Fortune," "The Warlock's Hairy Heart," "Babbitty Rabbitty and Her Cackling Stump," and of course, "The Tale of the Three Brothers." But not only are they the equal of fairy tales we now know and love, reading them gives new insight into the world of Harry Potter.

What can we say...we love all thing Harry Potter and that includes this little treasure. The five fairy tales are full of good lessons about friendship, and true magic - the love and kindness within the human heart. The commentaries from Dumbledore are a fun touch. But even better are the inclusion of historical backstory about the magical world of Harry Potter.

The Tales of Beedle the Bard is a must-have addition for every Muggles library!

You can win a copy! Go to out MegaBook Giveaway post to enter and Good Luck!

Mandy said...

Oh thats cool

Llehn said...

After Harry Potter I'm afraid to read anything from Ms Rowling in case it doesn't live up to expectations. Your review makes it sound marvelous though!

Brodie said...

I got a copy of this a couple of days after it came out, I looove Harry Potter! Except mine has the different version of the cover (blue/gray). I love all the tales in it and the commentaries by Dumbledore are great. You've inspired me to go re-read this now! =)

Juju at Tales of Whimsy.com said...

Very cool. I've never read this.

~Jennifer~ said...

I've been wary of reading this, afraid that it would taint the perfectness of the Harry Potter series. Maybe I should check it out after all.

TJ said...

You know, I actually quit the Harry Potter series half way... :/

Nicola said...

I thought the tales were cute but I most enjoyed Dumbledore's comments.

I loved this, especially Dumbledore's comments. I don't like the US covers for the series though.

ladystorm said...

I thought about getting this book once but then I saw the price tag on it and didn't think it was worth the money..now if I won it that might be different..LOL

Blodeuedd said...

Aww sounds fun :D
I must ask if my HP loving friend has read it, surely she has

Orchid said...

Interesting and since it's HP fairy tales I'd love to read it. :)

Jenn-ay said...

I'm a Harry Potter fan but for some reason I passed this up. I'll have to fix that!

Hmm... maybe I should read the HP series first? lol

donnas said...

Thanks! I have this but have been putting off reading it. I think I will read it soon now.

Bunny B said...

I've read this but didn't enjoy it as much as the HP series

Sarbear said...

I LOVE Harry Potter but I still have to finish the last book in the series, AND this one.

Nikki (A Haunt of Ancient Peace) said...

I own The Tales of Beedle and Bard, but for some reason I never read it. I think I was just so upset that the HP series ended, that I didn't want to read something from that world that wouldn't include Harry, Ron, and Hermione.

:D Nikki

booklover said...

I love Harry Potter but have not read this book. I was just so sad when the series ended...
