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.
Originally just seven hand-bound, gem-encrusted copies existed of J.K. Rowling's THE TALES OF BEEDLE THE BARD, but in December of 2008, Harry Potter fans the world over were able to get their hands on this important artifact of the tremendously successful series. Used to great effect in HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS, these five fairytales are supplemented with notes from Dumbledore himself! Filled with magical and Muggle history, the stories include "The Tale of Three Brothers," "The Fountain of Fair Fortune," "The Warlock's Hairy Heart," "The Wizard and the Hopping Pot," and "Babbitty Rabbitty and Her Cackling Stump." Illustrations from the original volume, along with an introduction by J.K. Rowling, are included.
