Product Description

'You've never heard of The Tales of Beedle the Bard?' said Ron incredulously. 'You're kidding, right?' (From Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows) Published by the charity Lumos in association with Bloomsbury Publishing Plc, The Tales of Beedle the Bard is the first new book from J. K. Rowling since the publication of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. The Tales of Beedle the Bard played a crucial role in assisting Harry, with his friends Ron and Hermione, to finally defeat Lord Voldemort. Fans will be thrilled to have this opportunity to read the tales in full. An exciting addition to the canon of Harry Potter, the tales reveal the wonderful versatility of the author, as she tackles with relish the structure and varying tones of a classic fairy tale. There are five tales: 'The Tale of the Three Brothers', recounted in Deathly Hallows, plus 'The Fountain of Fair Fortune', 'The Warlock's Hairy Heart', 'The Wizard and the Hopping Pot', and 'Babbitty Rabbitty and her Cackling Stump'. Each has its own magical character and will bring delight, laughter and the thrill of mortal peril. Translated from the original runes by Hermione Granger, the tales are introduced and illustrated by J. K. Rowling. Also included are notes by Professor Albus Dumbledore, which appear by kind permission of the Hogwarts Headmasters' Archive. Lumos is a charity founded by J. K. Rowling which aims to make life better for disadvantaged children. Registered Charity Number: 1112575.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little book! 13 Mar 2014
By Jen Nacht - Published on Amazon.com

Cute little book by JK, I'm a fan of fairy tales (esp the Brothers Grimm) and I'm a huge Harry Potter fan so I was pretty happy about it. I'm also glad I got this version, I like the cover a lot more than the newer version.

I know there are a lot of complaints from worried moms out there about the level of violence in one of the tales... however I don't think you did your research well at all seeing as all of the Harry Potter books have some element of violence in them- some I would even describe as graphic... Like when Fenrir Greyback "savaged" Parvarti Patil's face in the 7th book, or the torturing of the Longbottoms until they went completely insane, etc. It irritates me that this book gets negative reviews because you didn't realize how much violence was in the HP books and therefore were somehow surprised at the violence in this one. Please keep that in mind, especially since that isn't what the rating is meant for.

The book I received is the same as the one pictured. It's a little worn-looking, but if I had wanted a newer version I would have bought one. Arrived in a timely manner.
