Tales of Beedle the Bard

The Tales of Beedle the Bard
© 2007 J.K. Rowling
111 pages

“Translated from the ancient runes by Hermione Granger.
Commentary by Albus Dumbledore
Introduction, Notes, and Illustrations by J.K. Rowling”

If the end of the Harry Potter story this summer has left you sad, this charming little collection of stories set in-universe will bring a smile to your face. Mentioned in The Deathly Hallows, the book was ‘defictionalized’ as part of a charity drive, along with Quidditch through the Ages and Fantastic Beasts. Alas, there are only five stories included, but each is followed by commentary from Albus Dumbledore, who comments on the story’s meaning and legacy with his usual wise and gentle wit. The commentary is not only amusing, but it fleshes out the wizarding world all the more for fans of the series. Any and all fans of the Harry Potter series should enjoy this little collection of heart-warming fairy tales from a world where magic actually exists.
