The Tales of Beedle the Bard

Playful. Unlike the pleasure of curling up for days on end with a hefty Harry Potter book, J. K. Rowling's new book, The Tales of Beedle the Bard, contains five stories and can be read in a single sitting before a pot of tea would get cold. The stories are playful and a pleasure to read, but the real bonus is the commentary on each story written by Albus Dumbledore. I especially enjoyed the mildly veiled references to the Beatrix Potter stories. Net proceeds from the sale of this book are being given to a charity, the Children’s High Level Group, co-founded by Rowling to help make life better for vulnerable young people.

Rating: Three-star (Recommended)
