Book Review: The Tales Of Beedle The Bard (A Wizarding Classic From The World Of Harry Potter), by J.K. Rowling

Title: The Tales Of Beedle The Bard
Author: J.K. Rowling
Date Published: December 4th, 2008
Publisher: Bloomsbury
Length: 109 pages
Genre: Children's Fantasy
My Rating: ★★★★★

Synopsis: 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,” “Babbity 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 now know and love, reading them gives new insight into the world of Harry Potter.

My Review In A Sentence: 
A fun continuation in the Harry Potter world

My Thoughts: This was so much fun. I loved how different and creative each story was. They could practically count as real fairy tales! I also loved how Rowling wrote about Dumbledore, Professor McGonagall, and Hermione Granger as if they were real people (just goes to show how incredible this series was).
Overall, I don’t have much to say except I love everything Harry Potter, and it’s always a wonderful day when something new from the Harry Potter world comes out. It’s going to be dark times when I finish all the Harry Potter books; I swear I’m going to go into withdrawal once I’m done!


  1. I love this book. It made me miss Harry Potter so much.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  2. It made me miss too! On the plus side, though, my husband is now reading Harry Potter, so I get to read the series again! Yay! :D
