Amazon Review

The Tales of Beedle the Bard is published in aid of the Lumos www.wearelumos.org, an international children's charity (registered charity number 1112575) founded in 2005 by J.K Rowling.

Lumos is dedicated ending the institutionalisation of children, a harmful practice that effects the lives of up to eight million disadvantaged children around the world who live in institutions and orphanages, many placed there as a result of poverty, disability, disease, discrimination and conflict; very few are orphans. Lumos works to reunite children with their families, promote family-based care alternatives and help authorities to reform their systems and close down institutions and orphanages.

Review

'The stories are simple, original, diverse, witty and wise ... a book for families to share ... a storytelling treat' -- Books for Keeps, No 175, March 2009

`A moralist, a magician and a great liberal, Beedle is to the wizarding world what Hans Christian Anderson is to muggles (non-magical people). Refreshingly original ... and surprisingly satisfying. The Tales of Beedle the Bard contains all the playful humour and down-to-earth detail that makes her wizarding world so seductive' -- Sunday Times

`A new JK Rowling is always a delight for her millions of fans and this charming collection of fairytales, her first new book since Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows, lives up to expectation. The five enchanting tales told with the author's confident mixture of wit and wariness tell lessons for both children and parents alike ... This magic mixture combines to make an altogether delightful gift for young readers and for older folk who sometimes read to them' -- Sunday Express

`Rowling is herself responsible for the illustrations which are, in their spindly way, charming' -- The Observer

`Short but sweet ... think of it as an after-dinner mint, a little treat for those who've been with J.K. Rowling for the long haul' -- DeathRay, Feb/March 2009

`This slightly wistful collection of five original fairy tales certainly deserves to become a Christmas bestseller. As a wordsmith Rowling is always good, writing clear, uncluttered prose ... excellent at carrying a story forward. She is also funny, able to make not just her dialogue but also her descriptive passages interesting' -- The Independent

`Wonderfully concise, authentic-feeling cautionary yarns'
-- SFX Magazine, February 2009

I've been HUGE Potterhead for the past three years and this books was the perfect touch to my collection. It has five stories with additional notes from Albus Dumbledore himself (the Hogwarts headmaster). It also includes the "Tale Of The Three Brothers" which is mentioned and read in the deathly hallows by Hermione Granger. The book is really pretty and not very big. Also arrived quickly and in excellent quality.

A really good little read.... I mean little because I would like to have had more stories... A little too short for the price.... Hence the three stars.
