The Tales of Beedle the Bard by J. K. Rowling

107 pages

In the final book of the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, they make reference to a collection of wizarding folktales that Dumbledore left Hermione. One tale in particular in the collection turns out to be extremely important, “The Tale of the Three Brothers.” This book is that referenced collection. The book was supposedly translated from the original ancient ruins by Hermione and includes notes left by Dumbledore, and of course illustrations and footnotes by J. K. Rowling.

It is a real fun book to read, especially because of the notes and comments associated with each story. And the tales would be fun ones for Muggle children too.

    I really really really loved them. I thought you needed to gush over them more. I love JKR’s humor.
    Love Mom
