Review: The Tales of Beedle the Bard
The Tales of Beedle the Bard by J.K. Rowling
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I don't think I need to say that fans of Harry Potter would love to have this book as a collection. What's even better is that royalties from the sales of this book are 'donated to the Children's High Level Group, which works to benefit children in desperate need of a voice'.
This book has 5 stories, conjured up (pun intended) by Beedle, and serves as 'fables' of sorts in the wizarding world, as were Cinderella and Red Riding Hood in ours.
Of course, in this is the famous Tale of the Three Brothers, as read by Hermione in The Deathly Hallows. It also features commentaries by Dumbledore at the end of each fable.
So for fans who want to know more about the story that Hermione was reading to Harry & Ron, this makes for a good 'side reading', if you will.
