'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 Children's High Level Group 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.CHLG is a charity co-founded by J. K. Rowling and Emma Nicholson MEP and campaigns to protect and promote children's rights and make life better for vulnerable young people.The Children's High Level Group is a charity established under English law. Registered Charity Number: 1112575.

 A must have for every Harry Potter fan!!!!

I thoroughlly enjoyed reading the 5 stories and then Dumbledore's take on them. Jk has included a little extra history in the eplanations of the stories too. Its her extra details that I always like with JK for example on one of the first pages it says 'The Tales of Beedle the Bard, Translated from the original runes by Hermione Granger'. Each story has a hidden meaning and it just shows how much time and effort JK has put in to her wizarding world that surrounds Harry Potter. When reading Dumbledore's input I felt like he was talking from beyond the grave!!! Thanks Jk and Play! x

 A must

That is a must for everyone who wants to read Harry Potter books. It is a very good lecture, sometimes funny, and it explain a lot of the things that aren't explained by the books.

I suggest you tu buy Magical Beasts and Quidditch Through the Centuries as well.

 A good send-off for old Harry.

I've been really looking forward to this book, as a 14 year old teenager starved of 'harry potter' and I must say I enjoyed this book a great deal. The stories are funny, and although they are 'fairytales', they are no so childish that the language and plot is basic (read the warlock's hairy heart, then you'll understand). It was a good way to send off Harry Potter, and the money is going to charity too! All in all, a good buy.

 Brilliant Just As Good As The Well - Known 'Fairy-Tales'

| | See all left4bread2010's reviews (5)

This book consists of 5 wizarding fairy tales that seem so good that they belong with the classics such as okay i cant think of one just yet but these are classics my favourite 2 was warlock with the hairy heart and also the wizard and the hopping pot. In some of the stories it tells of wizards and helping muggles etc. The harry potter element comes in albus dumbledores notes witch add a few extra pages to each story. Sometimes refrencing characters such as lucius malfoy. Although quick to read this is must for any harry potter fan or even fairy tales to tell the kids .

 Great fairy tales for children as well as adults!

This is a must for any Harry Potter fan! The book provides some realy cool fairy tales, as well as an interesting "behind the scenes" look at the world of Harry Potter.
