The Tales of Beedle the Bard
Books | Juvenile Fiction / Fairy Tales & Folklore / General
The Tales of Beedle the Bard, a wizarding classic, first came to Muggle readers' attention in the book known as Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Now, thanks to Hermione Granger's new translation from the ancient runes, we present this stunning edition with an introduction, notes, and illustrations by J.K. Rowling, and extensive commentary by Albus Dumbledore. Never before have Muggles been privy to these richly imaginative tales: "The Wizard and the Hopping Pot," "The Fountain of Fair Fortune," "The Warlock's Hairy Heart," "Babbitty Rabbitty and Her Cackling Stump," and of course "The Tale of the Three Brothers." But not only are they the equal of fairy tales we know and love, reading them gives new insight into the wizarding world. This purchase also represents another very important form of giving: From every sale of this book, Scholastic will give its net proceeds to Lumos, an international non-profit organization founded by J.K. Rowling that works globally to transform the lives of disadvantaged children. wearelumos.org

"One of my favorite things about books is when they talk to you or include you in the story. This one did so on multiple occasions calling to your memories of Harry's journey.<br/><br/>I love the tale of the three brothers the most of course but with the amazing full cast audiobook and background noise it gave it a more sinister atmosphere. <br/><br/>The stories were very different from muggle bedtimes stories. They were harsh and scary for a child but ultimately gave very good advice when you are handed great power you should not take lightly.<br/><br/>The side notes from Albus were really intriguing he always knows more than he tells and I got an idea about how he knows so much. Honestly the audiobook outdone itself with characters from the movies and plays."
"A must-have if you collect the Harry Pottee series!"
