A Collection of Short Stories and Companion to The Harry Potter Series by J.K.Rowling
Storyline: The Tales of Beedle the Bard have been favourite bedtime reading in wizarding households for centuries. Full of magic and trickery, these classic tales both entertain and instruct, and remain as captivating to young wizards today as they were when Beedle first put quill to parchment in the fifteenth century. There are five tales in all: ”The Tale of the Three Brothers” Harry Potter fans will know from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows; ”The Fountain of Fair Fortune”, ”The Warlock”s Hairy Heart”, ”The Wizard and the Hopping Pot” and ”Babbitty Rabbitty and her Cackling Stump” complete the collection. These narrative gems are accompanied by explanatory notes by Professor Albus Dumbledore (included by kind permission of the Hogwarts Headmaster”s archive). His illuminating thoughts reveal the stories to be much more than just simple moral tales, and are sure to make Babbitty Rabbitty and the slug-belching Hopping Pot as familiar to Muggles as Snow White and Cinderella.
I love all these extra Harry Potter World books! Reading the Wizarding worlds fairytales was so fun. I liked the underlining morals of each story it was definitely a fantastic read, especially if you’re a fan of The Harry Potter Series. I loved all the notes From Dumbledore that were added between the stories that was a clever idea. My favourite Tales in this book were –aside from the obvious The Tale of Three Brothers which everyone loves– The Fountain of Fair Fortune and Babbity Rabbity and her Cackling Stump! I May actually read these fairytales to my kids because they’re so fun. I highly suggest it! If you haven’t read this yet, you should!
I rate this book
