'You've never heard of The Tales of Beedle the Bard?' said Ron incredulously. 'You're kidding, right?'
(taken from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows).
This richly magical collection of tales from J. K. Rowling is published in association with the Children's High Level Group, a charity co-founded in 2005 by J.K. Rowling and Emma Nicholson MEP.
I really enjoyed reading these short books. They follow the traditional fairy tales but with a wizard twist.This book also ties in really well with the Harry Potter series.
The Tales of Beedle the Bard - J K Rowling
I really enjoyed this only problem - it wasn't long enough. The style appealed to me and my daughter (aged 10), I found lots of Dumbledore's comments amusing and the morals are suitable for Wizard and Muggle alike.
Really quite fun!
I think Rowlings creative genuis and her sense of humour comes across extremely well in this style of writing. I'd honestly like to see her write more in this style! It's really a suprisingly amusing book, and great value for the entertainment.
