The Tales of Beedle the Bard

Book Blurb:

The Tales of Beedle the Bard contains five richly diverse fairy tales, each with its own magical character, that will variously bring delight, laughter and the thrill of mortal peril.

Essential and enjoyable reading for Muggles and wizards alike, The Tales of Beedle the Bard is a uniquely magical volume. With illuminating notes by Albus Dumbledore.

You may be magic or muggle, you may be of sixty or six, you would enjoy this book! This is a book written for young magic kids, but is now available to the muggles as well. And just like any JKR book, this “kid’s” book is filled with sweet, nice stories that are filled with mutilation, adultery, murder and bestiality.

I absolutely adored the Dumbledore’s epilogue as well as his comments on the stories, loved the way he snached it from the library for the muggle’s eyes!

This is a part of the Hogwarts Library Boxed Set. I got this set as a gift from my most favourite person in the world, me ;P

Each story, has been mentioned some or the other time in the Harry Potter books, so reading them it was like: “Ahh…so this is what Ron was talking about!”

Definitely worth a read!
